EcoCAR Program

Last updated: 5 November 2017
The EcoCAR program consists of three consecutive competitions, EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge (2008-2011), EcoCAR2: Plugging In to the Future (2011-2014), and EcoCAR3 (2014-2018).
These three- to four-year collegiate engineering competitions challenge North American universities to reduce the environmental impact (reduce fuel consumption, well-to-wheel greenhouse gas emissions, and criteria tailpipe emissions) of a given car without compromising performance, safety and consumer acceptability. EcoCAR involved 16 universities working on a Chevrolet Equinox, EcoCAR2 challenged 15 universities to work on a Chevrolet Malibu, and EcoCAR3 will ask 16 universities to work on a Chevrolet Camaro.
