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 hope to compete in a new category, Urban Concept.
We provide a welcoming and open environment
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. We meet in Ricketts 212 on Tuesdays from 7-8pm and on Saturdays from 12-3.
