Car built by the University of Toronto Students able to travel 3421 miles per gallon -

In recent Shell Eco-marathon Americas, where high school and university students are competing to build an effective vehicle, the winner was the University of Toronto. Unlike other teams that usually have an off-the-shelf model and modify it, the University of Toronto team was the only team that built the car from scratch.

It was the third time that the University took part in the competition; However, it was the first victory for the team in the competition. The team built a gasoline vehicle, which was able to travel about 3421 miles per gallon on a track in Detroit. Prashanth Murali Krishna, co-team leader and aerospace engineering graduate student said that the first year, they had a basic car, an aluminum frame, a poorly designed aeroshell and motor off-the-shelf. He added that last year they have improved a lot, changed a lot of designs, designed and built their own engine.

With this kind of competition, it gives a general idea that the future of transport would be good. Apparently Krishna had no intention to enter the automotive industry after completing this year; However, some of his teammates have plans to be part of the industry and we hope to take their expertise in fuel economy with them.

Another winner of the competition this year, as a cell car hydrogen fuel from Wheat Ridge High School Colorado which is capable of traveling 151 miles per kWh, an electric vehicle battery which is able to travel 450 per kWh which was built by Mater Dei High School students and a car in Indiana ethanol from the University of Colorado Boulder who is capable of reaching 842 miles per gallon.
