Sustainable race car: EVA

Electric vehicle EVA from the University of Applied Sciences Amsterdam participates in the Shell Eco-marathon Europe on a yearly basis. The Shell Eco-marathon Europe is one of world’s most challenging student competitions in terms of innovation, technique and sustainability. Organizer Shell challenges the students to build vehicles that drive as fuel efficient as possible.

On yearly basis almost 3000 students, divided over 200 teams from 24 European countries, participate in the Shell Eco-marathon Europe. Since the 27th edition in 2012 the event is hosted around Ahoy, Rotterdam. Next to the European race there are also an American and Asian version of the race.

Since 2014 the EVA team participates in the Urban Concept Battery Electric class. With a sixth place in her first year of participation the team created a solid base for further development.

Each year the team EVA is redefined with ambitious students from the second and third year of the studies E-Technology, Engineering, Design & Innovation, Technical Informatics, Aerodynamics, Communication, Sportsmarketing and Technical Business Management. Together they develop and implement new innovations to participate in the top.
