In 2018-19 the main goal for SAE was to build first 100% all electric formula one style vehicle at Concordia University while promoting sustainable engineering. This project is part of the international collegiate design series called SAE where the goal is to build a vehicle around a business logic case where you would market the car as a track day vehicle. Another point to make is that although there is a formula combustion team for Concordia SAE the plan is to eventually dissolve the combustion team and solely have an all electric team. For that to happen though we have to build a vehicle that can be a solid competitor at a competition. We need to show that we are competitive in our design presentations, static events, and dynamic events.
As this project goes into its third year as a branch of Concordia SAE they are continuing to make impressive strides with this project. In the next month SAE Concordia is expected to finally drive the car making it the official functional electric car at Concordia University. The project really exemplifies the intelligence, drive, and teamwork that the students at Concordia University have. As this project continues to grow it only emphasizes these values that our students have.
The goal of this project as it continues to expand, is to build an all-electric formula one style vehicle for the SAE International Collegiate Design Series with a focus on promoting sustainability. The purpose of the competition as a whole is to have teams design and manufacture a 100% electric vehicle that can outperform a formula one combustion vehicle by using an intricate electrical system that can replace the fuel-powered one. During the competition, the team will be judged by the design choices it has made in building the vehicle, the marketing possibilities stemming from it and the car’s performance in a series of dynamic events.
The purpose of the project is to build an Electrical Formula vehicle for the SAE International Collegiate Design Series while promoting sustainability. The competition invites students to design and manufacture a single-seat race car, that is put through its paces in a similar way to the Combustion Formula, with the additional challenge building a complex electrical system. The team will be judged on design and marketability as well as dynamic events. The team is a new branch of Concordia SAE consisting of ambitious undergraduate students. We are looking to take on the challenge of creating and racing fully electric vehicles, a first in the history of Concordia University.
