To revolutionise the automotive industry with a hydrogen-electric vehicle made completely of recyclable, low environmental impact materials that uses a range of energy regenerative technologies for a highly efficient, zero emission daily commute.


Through combining the expertise of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and industrial design, with the use of advanced computer aided design, simulation and Product Lifecycle Management. The Shell Eco-Marathon Urban Concept Vehicle is the perfect way to combine the need for eco-friendly transportation, innovative engineering and design into a project which has the ability to change the lives of many South Africans and the future of the planet.

How does it use design to improve lives?

This project will help reduce the need for fossil fuels and the use of non-biodegradable materials in the automotive industry, reducing the strain on the planets resources and environment. The easy construction of the vehicle will provide jobs for many South Africans and the vehicle will provide affordable, eco-friendly transportation for the country and eventually the world.
