News Sentinel: UT students convert Chevy Malibu for class project

 

The Knoxville News Sentinel interviewed UT’s Eco CAR2 team about their three-year challenge to convert a Chevrolet Malibu into a more eco-friendly car. The team is rebuilding it to run off ethanol and electricity. Their designs, though similar to hybrid cars already on the market, will be different in how the systems interact, said Mitchel Routh, a mechanical engineering graduate student set to finish his degree next week.
