"GO GREEN SAVE EARTH"
"ELECTRIC MOBILITY IS FUTURE and solution to POLLUTION"
The BAJA SAE Series is an event for the undergraduate engineering students, organized globally by the Society of Automotive Engineers, USA. The event originated in the name of Mini - BAJA, in the year 1976 at University of Carolina. Since then, the event has spanned across six countries – USA, Mexico, South Africa, Korea, Brazil and India. The BAJA SAE tasks the students to design, fabricate and validate a single seater four - wheeled off road vehicle to take part in series of events spread over a course of 3 days that test the vehicle for the sound engineering practices that have gone into it, the agility of the vehicle in terms of gradability, speed, acceleration and manoeuvrability characteristics and finally its ability to endure that back breaking durability test.
eBAJA is an intercollegiate design competition . Teams of students need to design and build electric powered atv that has Traction motor of 48V with fully automatic transmission having 10.83 Gear Ratios and 160 ah of battery pack.
Considering the vision and road-map of automobile 2020 , eBAJA SAEINDIA is a step ahead in gradual liberalization of the automobile sector in India. It Is the strong approach towards shaping the future direction of auto industry so as to promote and achieve sustainable growth.
This was a new initiative introduced in 2014 on the counsel of former President of India, APJ Abdul Kalam, in order to promote greener mobility. All entries in this category run on rechargeable lithium ion batteries. While there isn’t any specification on where students must source their powertrains from for this competition, most teams usually use a Mahindra Reva (now Mahindra Electric) engine for their cars.
eBAJA is amongst the most significant inventive in India. It is the first of its kind competition throughout the world. Taking up the initiative Mahindra Reva is providing strong upfront and proactive support to all teams in means of providing power train kits and onsite technical assistance.
