May 22, 2013

Wayne State University's EcoCAR 2 team was featured during a segment on Fox 2's morning news program. The WSU team is in the third year of a three year challenge to turn a Chevy Malibu into a more eco-friendly car by changing the engine and other key components. General Motors donated the car for this competition sponsored by GM and the Department of Energy. The 40 or so students and grad students involved are studying mechanical and electrical engineering.
