DOE and GM Launch EcoCAR Competition

EcoCAR: The NeXt Challenge is a three-year competition sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy, General Motors, Natural Resources Canada and other sponsors. EcoCAR provides engineering students the chance to design and build advanced vehicles that demonstrate leading-edge automotive technologies with the goal of minimizing the environmental impact of personal transportation and illustrating pathways to a sustainable transportation future.

The EcoCAR Request for Proposal(RFP) selection process is open to accredited engineering schools in Canada, the United States of America, and Mexico. The organizers expect to have an open teleconference to discuss the details of the proposal and selection process early in January 2008 and Final proposals for EcoCAR are due March 3, 2008. Additional resources will be available at until the new EcoCAR website has been established.
