The battle of Green mobility is here yet again with all new excitement & challenges as never before.
Let’s join our hands to accomplish Green Mobility for a Greener tomorrow.
I welcome you to the 8th season of SAEINDIA Northern Section Efficycle’2017. I am highly delighted and overwhelmed with your response to the concept of Efficycle I would like to congratulate participants, winners in the previous seasons & truly appreciate the deep commitment and enthusiasm of each one of you for making the Efficycle a memorable & highly competitive event.
Efficycle, as a concept was started in 2010 to draw the attention of our young college students towards the need of green mobility solutions & showing their capabilities in designing & fabricating an Efficycle concept vehicle, a three wheel configuration vehicle powered by human-electric hybrid power.This season’s theme “Drive Excellence” requires more efforts from the grey matter of our young Engineer’s generation.
The event started with 18 teams participated in its first season. In the last few seasons of Efficycle, We touched a record high of 225 teams participated in virtual round & 90 teams in the main event at Chandigarh. I expect much higher enthusiasm & commitment in this season than ever before not only in terms of participation but also in terms of novelty, creativity in designs & much enhanced quality in fabrication.
This green mobility revolution which is deeply supported by each one of you always inspires us to spread it to further domains by engaging more & more institutions and students. I am delighted to share with you that we have obtained the copy right of EFFICYCLE Rulebook which will ensure the further spread of the revolution under one umbrella which brings us together in achieving the goal of green mobility.
The Efficycle organizing committee & the volunteers are putting up their best effort in providing you a platform to develop and apply your engineering skills to this revolution of green transportation. This year we are moving to a new venue to bring in freshness & new energy to the event. I am happy to inform you that the venue for the Efficycle 2017 will be Lovely Professional University, Jalandhar.
On behalf of SAE INDIA (Society of Automotive Engineers INDIA) Northern section Governing board, I convey my best wishes to you and your team.
