Nanyang Technological University's Nanyang Venture VIII Team’s creation of the world’s first 3D printed car.
Nanyang Technological University's “Nanyang Venture 8” – Singapore’s first 3D-printed car.

Shell Eco-marathon is a unique competition that challenges students around the world to design, build and drive the most energy-efficient car. With three annual events in Asia, Americas and Europe, student teams take to the track to see who goes further on the least amount of fuel.

Singapore teams from various tertiary institutes have been participating in the Shell Eco-marathon Asia event since 2010. The teams have enjoyed huge success and achieved a record haul of 6 awards in the 2012 edition and recently in the 2016 edition.

The teams are constantly pushing their limits. Most notably, in 2014, the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) created ‘Nanyang Venture 8’ - Singapore’s first urban solar electric car with an innovative 3D-printed body shell that has 150 parts. We look forward to more successes from the Singapore teams!

Shell is fully committed to solving the issue of sustainability through a STEM-based solution, and has been inspiring bright young minds to outdo themselves with their STEM innovations.
