About the project

We are Team Ojas, a Formula Student Electric team from VIT University, Vellore. Our mission is to make racing sustainableWe believe that electrical technology is the future of the industry and therefore, we have been actively participating in Formula Electric, which is an international competition organised by SAE. The competition is organised in countries like Italy, Germany, Austria and others throughout the globe. In the past four years, we have participated in various events including FS-UK twice, FSAE-Italy, FS-Germany and are going to participate in the upcoming Formula SAE Italy in July'17. We were the runners-up in the Indian event i.e. Formula Green in Coimbatore in March'17.












Why crowdfunding?

Team Ojas is an entirely student funded team. We never compromise on quality to build a high-standard Formula prototype electric car. For the same reason, we purchase materials from all over the world including tires from Germany, cells from China, differential from Australia and so on. Therefore, we depend mostly on corporate and private firms, who provide their support in terms of Product Sponsorship and sometimes, monetary funding. We, as a team, believe that we can reach our goals and make our country proud. However, we are limited in terms of resources available to us. Each and every individual today has a responsibility to reduce the carbon footprint. Electric Cars are the future and we want you to be a part of this future and back a project that is paving the way for alternate sources of power in the automobiles' sector!

How will the money be used?

Rs. 100000 in PMDC Motors

Rs. 90000 in Shipping to Italy

Rs. 35000 in Research and Development

Rs. 25000 in Admin Fee


What is Formula Student and Formula Green?

Formula Student program is an engineering design competition for undergraduate and graduate students organised by SAE in over 11 countries every year. The competition provides participants with the opportunity to enhance their engineering design and project management skills by applying learned classroom theories in a challenging competition. The engineering design goal for teams is to develop and construct a single-seat race car for the non-professional weekend autocross racer, with the best overall package of design, construction, performance and cost.
Formula Green is initiated by Indian Society of New Era Engineers (ISNEE). It is a competition where students from different colleges in India compete with a Formula electric vehicle. This series is similar to the global student Formula series held in different countries annually.

Our Achievements!

We were the first team to represent India at the Formula Electric event held in Germany in 2015. Our team’s popularity is evident not only within the boundaries of our University, but also throughout our nation and across significant parts of Europe. 2017 started with Formula Green, where our car, TOR'16, was crowned the 2nd Best Formula Student Electric Vehicle in the country! The results were as follows :
1. Best Design
2. Best and most innovative Manufacturing
3. Best Cost Report
4. Best Business Plan
5. 2nd in Acceleration
6. 2nd in Autocross
7. 2nd in Skidpad

Why Team Ojas?

We believe that buying readymade products to build a car will not match-up to the high standards of innovation that we claim to have. Hence, every single part of this car is studied and researched upon to explore more cost-effective options.
The electrical systems of the car like the Safety Shutdown System, the Electronic Control Unit and the Battery Management System have been designed in-house. To meet this requirement, a high fraction of funds needs to be put into Research and Development.

What happens if we fail to raise enough money?

If we don’t reach the target then we won’t be able to meet our deadline for shipping our vehicle to Italy (July 1st week). After putting this much effort into making this prototype, it’s the competition in Italy that will expose us to new technology abroad and help us to perform better. In the end, being the only Indian entry at the event, we will end up letting every Indian down!

How will we prove that we won't just take all the money and run away?

Our responsibility is to make sure that every donor of ours knows where we are spending their money. We make it a point to inform all our donors regarding the progress of the team. We are a team that can confidently boast of 100 alumni and counting, with an established legacy of 5 years and a proven track record. We assure you that your money will be spent where it’s absolutely necessary. Any donor of ours can reach us directly through email or a message on Facebook, making the team approachable and transparent. We are students of a reputed institution and being the official Formula Student Electric Team of VIT University, Vellore, we pledge to not let you down.
