WVU EcoCAR Mobility Challenge
West Virginia University has been competing in advanced vehicle technology competitions (AVTCs) since 1988, beginning with the Methanol Marathon. Now, with the experience of 10 AVTC's in its past, WVU has been chosen as one of the 12 universities to compete in the latest AVTC: EcoCAR Mobility Challenge. West Virginia University's EcoCAR Team is made up of over 80 undergraduate, graduate, and Ph.D. students majoring in all fields of engineering, business, communications, and journalism. This exceptional group of students who come from several different states and countries will be working together for the next four years to create a hybrid-electric 2019 Chevrolet Blazer that reduces environmental impact while integrating Connected and Automated Vehicle systems (CAVs). WVU's EcoCAR team will be using the latest cutting-edge technologies to produce the ultimate energy-efficient, high-performance vehicle while working together towards the competition's goals. EcoCAR also gives WVU students the opportunity to experience an innovative team dynamic that will be invaluable in their future careers.
Any donation of Gold or higher will get their company logo on the car. All donations will receive advertisement on our website.
