Summary:

Team Futuramic, a group of young engineering students has to build energy-efficient vehicles that reduce the exploitation of petrol, making fuel last longer


Energy efficient vehicles that make the best of resources used is the new norm for the automobile engineering generation that works by the constraints of BS standards. As India positions itself as an advanced market for electric vehicles and is preparing to have 100 percent e-mobility by 2030, Team Futuramic, a group of young engineering students has built an energy-efficient vehicle that reduces the exploitation of petrol, making fuel last longer.

Team Futuramic, a group of young engineering students has to build energy-efficient vehicles that reduce the exploitation of petrol, making fuel last longer.

The team of 24 is headed by 21-year-old Abhinandan Prabhu Duggavathi (team manager) from Sir M Visvesvaraya Institute of Technology, Bengaluru. Atharva 2.0, their latest creation, is a prototype of a vehicle that is futuristic in nature. The vehicle prototype will be showcased at the Shell Eco-marathon Asia 2018 (SEM) that is being held as part of Shell’s ‘Make the Future’ Festival in Singapore between March 8 and 11

Team Futuramic is one of the 12 Indian teams that have qualified for the second phase of SEM this year. The team also has a history of participating in the contest, registering their first significant win in 2015, placing first among participant teams from India, and seventh in Asia.

Being a group of young students and making it to this point despite their first win at SEM has come with a lot of challenges, shares Team Futuramic, the most significant of which was finding sponsors for this project.
