What is EcoCAR 3?

EcoCAR 3 is an Advanced Vehicle Technology Competition sponsored by the US Department of Energy and General Motors. EcoCAR 3 challenges 16 North American Universities to reengineer a Chevrolet Camaro over four years to reduce its environmental impact while retaining the high performance characteristics of the vehicle.

Students participating in EcoCAR 3 gain valuable, hands-on, real-world experience with automotive engineering and development processes used in industry.

The Ohio State University has participated in Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions for over twenty years. In June 2014, the Ohio State team won the previous EcoCAR 2 competition.
