EcoCAR 2010 Recap: the Full List of Year Two Winners!

The EcoCAR teams have now headed home after almost two weeks of intense competition in Yuma and San Diego. Most teams are invigorated by the competition, and use it as an opportunity to see how their vehicle measures up in a rigorous test environment.  Even as the students left the awards ceremony and began heading to the airport, they could be heard discussing their strategy for next year. It’s a testament to how passionate these young people are about their vehicles and the EcoCAR program.

While many students graduated this year and have accepted jobs in the industry, many are coming back along with new recruits the team brings on board for the third and final year of EcoCAR. Most of the returning students will be spending at least part of their summer in their Green Garage, because the competition doesn’t get any easier during the third year, when they will be asked to further refine their vehicles and make them fully-functional prototype vehicles with “near showroom” quality.
