Shell Eco-Marathon is an annual competition for High Schools and Universities in all of Europe, competing in who can make the most fuel efficient vehicle, using the energy equivalent to one litre of petrol. There are two classes; Urban Concept and Prototype.
The multidisciplinary group of 10 students from The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) works on an Urban Concept vehicle as a Project and Master Thesis to be published later this year. With yesterday’s victory and new World Record in Shell Eco-Marathon this sure looks promissing.
The car’s petrol consumption was down to an incredible 1 liter per 1246 km – simply amazing! Now they just have to convince the car industry to start using their technology and the world would be a slightly greener place 🙂
