About the Competition

The 17th Efficiency Challenge Electric Vehicle Races will be held this year. The event’s aim is to make students get information on vehicle technologies, gain experience in the area, have the opportunity to research in the area and to encourage students to follow related technology developments in the world.

The race aims to popularize the use of alternative and clean energy sources in the automotive industry, attract the public's attention regarding the use of alternative energies in vehicle technologies and raise awareness about the issue. The competition includes two categories: Electromobile (battery powered electric vehicle) and Hydromobile (hydrogen powered electric vehicle). This year, the Hydromobile races will be organized with the support of TENMAK Presidency of the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources.In the Electromobile and Hydromobile categories, awards are presented according to the final ranking made by calculating energy consumption.
