Virginia Tech team wins EcoCAR Competition

The team from Virginia Tech University received top honors as overall winners of EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge after designing and building an extended-range electric vehicle (EREV) using E85 (ethanol).

Virginia Tech competed against 15 other universities to take home the top prize of the three-year competition sponsored by the Department of Energy and General Motors.

Taking second place, also with an E85 EREV, was Ohio State University. The University of Waterloo took third place with a hydrogen fuel cell plug-in hybrid electric vehicle.



"The EcoCAR competition challenged participating engineering students to re-engineer a GM-donated vehicle to minimize the vehicle's fuel consumption and emissions...the equivalent of nearly 82 miles per gallon—a 70% improvement in fuel efficiency over the stock vehicle"

Not bad and if it runs on cellulose E85 all the better.
