In Year Three of EcoCAR 3, teams worked with organizers to secure hardware, software and industry mentors to help them integrate their hybrid-electric designs into a 2016 Chevrolet Camaro, with the end goal of making the vehicle even more energy-efficient without losing high-performance and safety features Camaro buyers expect.
EcoCAR 3 teams will travel from all over the country to bring their eco-friendly Camaro prototypes and test them at the Year Three Competition. The EcoCAR 3 Year Three Competition will take place from May 14-25, 2017 at locations throughout the Detroit and Washington, DC metropolitan areas. Teams will first gather in Milford, Michigan at the General Motors Milford Proving Grounds from May 14 – 20. Teams will undergo a series of safety and technical inspections to qualify for on road vehicle testing, including dynamic safety, acceleration/performance testing and energy consumption events. Team Camaros will have the opportunity to go head-to-head in a thrilling Autocross event during the week.
Teams will then advance to stage two of the competition in Washington D.C. From May 21-25, teams will participate in various technical, communications, and project management presentations, highlighting their activities from the year, culminating in an awards ceremony on May 25 where more than $100K in industry-funded awards will be given out!
