The UA EcoCAR 3 Team’s MISSION is to develop a fully functional, consumer acceptable hybrid-electric vehicle that meets and exceeds the design criteria of the competition by engaging a multi-disciplinary team with a broad range of expertise and light the fire of curiosity in the next generation of automotive engineers through local community outreach events.


The UA EcoCAR 3 Team’s VISION is that we will be a leading stimulus in the development of advanced propulsion and alternative fuel technologies amongst North American academic institutions. Through interdisciplinary teaming we will successfully incorporate innovative ideas, solve complex challenges, and proficiently utilize the latest cutting-edge technologies. We will achieve new levels of collaboration within and external to the domain of engineering while capitalizing on the diversity of our student body.


The UA EcoCAR 3 team embraces DIVERSITY by valuing the unique talents, ideas and perspectives of our students and community. We are committed to fostering an inclusive environment that provides each student with the opportunity to achieve his or her full potential. By leveraging our team’s diverse talents and experiences we not only deliver ingenuity and innovation but also better serve our community.
