Local UW ‘DAWG Students Shining in ecoCAR2 challenge...

That’s University of Washington Huskies, aka thee ‘DAWGS Y’all, as I know its buried deep inside the NoFendersville Storybox somewherez; as I’ve heard & read previously of the ecoCAR2 challenge, which is pitting multiple University student groups over the Department Of Energy’s challenge to come up with amazing new automobiles in search of higher fuel efficiency standards, most notably the mandate for 55mpg fleet averages by 202x.

Thus, the UW’s concept is fairly unique, utilizing a “Through-the-road” philosophy, which entails the donor vehicle, a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu to utilize two separate engines, with its front and rear wheels being independent of each other while utilizing two different power sources - as I have to admit its an interesting  concept...
