UW EcoCAR Makes The Seattle Times!

Congratulations to the 40 engineering students on the University of Washington (UW) EcoCAR 2 team! Their hard work, even this early in the competition, paired with a collective vision for more sustainable automobiles, caught the eye of Seattle Times reporter Katherine Long.

The article details the team’s goal to create a car which runs for up to 50 miles on electric charge alone, and then switches to a biodiesel engine projected to offer the driver a stunning 100 miles per gallon! Hopefully this positive coverage will provide a boost for the UW team and help propel them through the next three years of EcoCAR 2.
