Eco Car

Rising fuel prices, combined with a national obsession for going green are creating fundamental changes in what people expect from their cars. The issues of energy efficiency, global climate change and cleaner air pose challenges across the globe. To address these concerns the United States Department of Energy, General Motors and Natural Resources: Canada have developed a three-year collegiate advanced vehicle technology engineering competition to demonstrate and extend the progress toward a common goal: sustainable mobility. The competition challenges 17 universities across North America to explore vehicle solutions to minimize energy consumption and reduce emissions. Students use a real-world engineering process, modeled after GM's Global Vehicle Development Process (GVDP) and integrate their advanced technology solutions into a Saturn Vue.
