The Shell Eco Marathon Americas, which took place on March 27, 2010, attracted 42 teams from 9 high schools and 28 Universities across America. The race consisted of two categories--Prototype and Urban Concept. Competitors were allowed to use alternative energy sources like hydrogen, biomass and solar energy.

Students from Laval University, Canada, who won last year's challenge, were the winners of this year's Shell Eco Marathon Americas.

Implications - With eco-consciousness growing around the world, the automotive industry has to adopt certain eco-friendly alternatives into the body of products it releases to the consumer world. Initially, vehicles that prioritized this way of life were not conducive to luxury and style, but as the movement continues, its influence is extending into all varieties of cars.
