Formula Student Competition
Formula Student Electric is an international competition for fully-electric racing cars. It is one of three Formula Student Competitions, with the other two competitions covering combustion and autonomous racing cars. The electric racing car competition challenges students to conceive, design, produce, develop, and compete with formula-style racing cars. In 2017, some 140 student teams competed in various locations worldwide.
The competition consists of several events divided into two main categories: dynamic and static. The static events cover aspects such as safety, business proposals, costs, marketing, engineering design, and sustainability. The dynamic events involve track tests to evaluate performance features such as acceleration, endurance, efficiency, and steady-state cornering.
