PV3e - ESTACA students' energy-efficient vehicle project
The PV3e association design and build vehicle and engine to participate in the Shell Eco Marathon. Highlight of the associative life, this race gathers each year the best teams of Europe.
Each year, the PV3e competes with one prototypes in the internal combustion engine category (Campus Paris-Saclay from Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines).

Energy saving is the watchword. The current record of the association is 2,701 Km with 1 liter of gasoline, the equivalent of a Paris-Madrid! In order to push the limits of energy saving, members maximize the aerodynamics and structure of their prototypes. Within the PV3e, students can learn to use 3D design software, structural computation, fluid mechanics, racing strategy. They thus take a first step in the world of car racing.
