Our Goal

USEV exists to design, manufacture and test a highly efficient electric vehicle for competing in the annual Shell Eco- Marathon competition.

To achieve this, we use lightweight materials, precision machined components and custom electronics.

Our Experience

We are committed to ensuring members have and enjoyable and educational experience in the team.

Our philosophy encourages members to gain new skills that will be invaluable in university and the workplace and gain new friends.

We are Student Led

USEV is run by students, for students.

In addition to designing and building the vehicle from the ground up, our members work to acquire funds through sponsorship

as well as organise events for the team to attend.
