McMaster University and Waterloo University students build innovative hybrid-electric muscle cars that can reduce environmental impact

June 7, 2016 - Two teams of engineering students from McMaster University and University of Waterloo, both in the Canadian province of Ontario, are taking part in EcoCAR 3, a competition that represents the future of engineering research in reducing environmental impact. Their challenge is to innovate and build a plug-in hybrid muscle car that can run from zero to 100 kilometres an hour in less than five seconds.

The two Canadian teams are competing against 14 American teams in the four-year competition – the typical time it takes to develop a new car.

This is the first time McMaster University is participating in the competition. Waterloo University has participated for the last 20 years.
