The EcoCAR3 Challenge

**This is a sponsored video**

In April 2018 I had the privilege of meeting some of the students at Ohio State University who were working on the EcoCAR3 challenge. It was an enlightening experience.

They showed me around the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro they were given to modify for the EcoCAR3 challenge. What started out as a V6 Camaro is now a plug in hybrid that gets 40mpg, while still maintaining much of it's stock performance. No easy task, especially when you consider they've taken a T-5 manual transmission and covered it to automatic operation.

I know what goes into building cars I can honestly say I was blown away by the work these students did. It's an amazing vehicle, and I hope they win the challenge with it.
