About Shell Eco-marathon
Shell Eco-marathon is a unique competition that challenges students to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient car. At three events around the world hundreds of team compete to travel the furthest on the least amount of energy. Some achieve distances equivalent to driving from Paris to Moscow (that's 2,485 km or 1,544 miles) on a single litre of fuel.
Running on energy sources ranging from diesel to solar, participants compete in a car designed purely for ultra energy-efficiency or one that also considers the practical needs of everyday drivers.
