Formula Hybrid team places second in world

May 6th, 2016

2016_news_SAE_formula_hybridMay 6, 2016 — MSOE’s Formula Hybrid team took second place in the world at the Formula Hybrid Competition and first place in the United States. The competition was held in May at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Louden, New Hampshire. Founded and run by Dartmouth, the competition challenges college and university students to design, build and compete high-performance hybrid and electric vehicles. Building on the Formula SAE program, Formula Hybrid adds an extra level of complexity: fuel efficiency.

The Formula Hybrid competition consists of a variety of dynamic and static events. Throughout the events, students assume the role of a design team engaged to create a prototype vehicle. Teams demonstrate their creativity and project management skills, as well as their vehicle’s performance and durability. The challenge is to create a vehicle that is road-worthy and prevail over other designs. Events are scored to determine how well a vehicle will perform.
