Our Vehicle - E2D2 (Ethanol-Electric-Dual-Drivetrain)

Wayne State University’s EcoCAR 2 team will be hybridizing a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu graciously donated by General Motors. We aim to reduce fuel emissions through our hi-tech redesign without compromising on safety or comfort.

The 2013 Malibu is a mid-sized sedan designed for comfort and intuitive handling. As one of the best performing cars of its class, the Malibu is the new standard for premium style and assertive performance. The EcoCAR 2 Team at WSU will strive to maintain these standards, while decreasing the amount of emissions that a Malibu produces, making it ecologically friendly and promoting an enjoyable and sustainable driving experience.

We are proud to present the WSU EcoCAR 2 Parallel Through-the-Road (PTTR) Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV)
