After eight intense days here at General Motors Milford Proving Grounds, the EcoCAR 2 teams have accomplished many things. Not only did all 15 teams pass safety tech and on-road safety evaluation, but we had 14 teams complete autocross, 13 teams attempt acceleration and braking, and 11 teams pass emissions and energy consumption! These are all great accomplishments by the teams. The teams also had to present Static Consumer Acceptability and Vehicle Testing Complete presentations over the weekend, which impressed industry and professional judges on the quality of the students work!
But what did the EcoCAR 2 students really learn over the last three years of the competition? Several students talk about their experiences in EcoCAR in the video below, which also includes highlights from this past week at General Motors.
Now that the Milford, Michigan portion has come to a close, the EcoCAR 2 teams begin their travels to Washington, D.C. to present static and sponsor presentations over the next few days. Make sure to check back for updates about the competition on our Facebook, Flickr, and Instagram accounts and tune in on Thursday, June 12 for a real-time feed of the Awards Ceremony winners via Twitter and a live video reveal of the top six winners for the Year Three Competition.
