Chennai: Shell announced that Malaysia will host Shell Eco-marathon Asia in 2019 as part of its global Make the Future Live programme from 29 April to 2 May at Kuala Lumpur.

Student teams from 12 engineering universities in India will compete in Malaysia to showcase their energy efficient prototypes

To be held at Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur, the event challenges bright young student minds to design and build ultra-energy-efficient cars, and then take them out on the track in competition.

From April 29 to May 2 over 100 teams from all over Asia and the Middle East will test their self-built energy-efficient cars in the Shell Eco-marathon Mileage Challenge, to see who can go the farthest using the least amount of energy.  

In 2018 event, the winning team was efficient enough to travel 2,341 kilometres – about the distance from Malaysia to Yangon, Myanmar – on just one litre of fuel!

Shell Eco-marathon can be traced back to 1939 at a Shell research laboratory in the United States as a friendly wager between scientists to see who could get the most miles per gallon from their vehicle.

Student teams will also have the opportunity to qualify for the Shell Eco-marathon Drivers’ World Championship.

India will be participating in Shell Eco-marathon Asia for the 9th year in a row, with a contingent of 12 futuristic cars from 12 universities competing to be the most energy-efficient.

Young minds from prestigious Indian universities such as Delhi Technological University (DTU); Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) – Banaras Hindu University (BHU); Sir M Visvesvaraya Institute of Technology, Bangalore; Vellore Institute of Technology (VIT) University; and Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS) Pilani will participate and showcase fuel-efficient technologies.
