We design and build electric cars from the ground up
Rensselaer Electric Vehicle (REV) is a student organization for the design of electric vehicles at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. The team, formerly known as the RPI Solar Car Racing Team, has competed in the Shell Eco-marathon since 2011. We have built three cars since we were founded, and in 2014 we built an Urban Concept car, Tachyon. Our current project is Testa, which we hope to race this fall at Electrathon.
Our club has a strong focus on older members working with new members, and helping incoming students along. We provide opportunities for new students to get hands-on experience quickly, as well as teach them basic design principles and practices.
Our first meeting of the 2017 will be January 24th, 2017 in Ricketts 212. Come learn more about REV and see how much fun it is! Contact us for more information, or learn more about how to join:
