The REEV Competition Philosophy

The REEV competition is an outcome of a well-conceived purpose to springboard the next generation of urban mobility pioneers. SAE Bengaluru, together with partners such as General Motors Technical Centre-India and TVS Motors to name a few worked for over eighteen months to make REEV  competition a reality! The purpose and vision have been a driving force since the conception of this competition. These are shared values across SAE, and all the partners of REEV !

To create an elite engineering platform which can enhance the knowledge and skills of students through experiential learning in electric, hybrid and other energy efficient urban mobility solutions.
To Introduce Students to the rigour of a disciplined and structured vehicle development culture as prevalent in the Automotive Industry, focusing on safety, innovation, quality and sustainability.
Student Goal
Make an urban vehicle that is Fuel Efficient (FE), considering Environment and Technology in mind through a disciplined and structured development plan.

Salient Points

“REEV  focuses on developing engineers of tomorrow who will bring about revolutionary solutions to urban mobility. REEV will steer, evaluate and direct the competition in a manner to uphold this purpose.”

-Brian McMurray
Site Leader, General Motors Technical Centre-India

Safety First
Specific focus on Safety. We need safe urban vehicles that make car crashes a thing of the past.
Energy Efficiency
We will focus on Hybrid Technology to start with and evolve into even more efficient modes
Styling is crucial for urban mobility solutions. We need visual appeal and functionality for urban vehicles
Performance Balance
Safety goes a long way only with considerations of Acceleration, Handling, Braking
Bringing in Electrification; Welcome the girls and guys of Controllers, BMS, Power electronics, to REEV
Cost and Mass Efficiency
Focus on fundamentals to optimize cost and mass through robust designs
Ergonomics / Comfort
Ensure that driver comfort and ergonomics are not compromised, this is critical for urban mobility
REEV will heavily drive Innovation. Can we innovate within the given constraints and rules of the game?

REEV is powered by strong partners who are industry leading automotive companies in India and globally, along with SAE India.
