As part of the EcoCAR: The Next Challenge student competition, the Georgia Tech (GT) team is designing a hybrid vehicle to be integrated into a production stock 2009 Saturn Vue. The team chose to use E85 in a spark-ignition engine with lithium ion batteries and employ GM's 2-mode hybrid transmission (2-MT). The preliminary results in terms of performance, emissions, and fuel economy are presented.
