Those good 'ol Hokies over at Virginia Tech have walked off with top honors in the GM Challenge X 2006. It seems the team of smarties reengineered a 2005 Chevrolet Equinox as a split-parallel hybrid with two electric motors, that also runs on E85 and has an operating range from Blacksburg, VA to the Lincoln Tunnel on a case and a half of Yuengling Lager (if only). They beat out the University of Wisconsin-Madison's biodiesel-electric hybrid, and Mississippi State's steamboat.
