College students find ways to improve fuel economy

It’s year two of the “Eco Car2: Plugging into the Future” competition and the cars are up and running! The Eco Car 2 competition gives college students real world experience in automotive vehicle design and execution.

Nearly 16,000 students have participated in Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions like Eco CAR to spring board finding a job after graduation.

Penn State student Cheyenne Sexton and Jim Kohloff from General Motors talk about the competition, what the students are achieving, and why this is an important competition for America.
