The eV Challenge is a competition for teams to design and build a cheap but effective electric vehicle and then compete with it against other teams. Competitors will be tasked with driving around a closed circuit, relying solely upon a specified amount of battery storage. The winning team will be the one that travels the greatest distance in 60 minutes.

Aimed mainly at schools, there is also an open category available to TAFE college, university, business and private teams.

The spirit of the event is to build an inexpensive but safe and effective machine in an environment of open-ended learning and team work.
