Tesla Joins Formula Electric Racing NUST As A Creative Partner
Tesla has promised to provide technical support, technology sharing, and essential components for EV development, which will assist FERN in scaling up their product.
NUST university’s Formula Electric Racing NUST (FERN) program is an ambitious and innovative project that is focused on developing the world’s first electric racing vehicle. Tesla Inc., a multibillion dollar manufacturer of electric vehicles, has joined FERN as a creative partner. This partnership is likely to be a major success for the FERN program, as it will provide valuable resources and expertise to help the team achieve its goals.
This collaboration between Tesla and NUST has the potential to transform FERN by providing optimal quality guidance and financial support. Tesla has promised to provide technical support, technology sharing, and essential components for electric vehicle (EV) development, which will assist FERN in scaling up their product.
The FERN team approached Tesla Inc. in search of a collaboration, which is how this Tesla and NUST collaboration came about. And, seeing the program’s impressive potential and sensing its bright future, Tesla agreed to become a partner.
And rightly so, as FERN’s current model has some of the best specs and numbers; its current project car uses a 5 kWh battery that is good for a range of 22 km. It has a top speed of 120 kph and can go from a standstill to 100 kph in just 4.5 seconds, making it a quicker-accelerating vehicle than most cars on Pakistani roads.
The team is currently working on developing several in-house components that it plans to integrate into the upcoming iterations of the vehicle. FERN’s consistent hard work and dedication continue to be a sense of pride for the nation.
The development of electric racing vehicles is an important area of research, as it can help drive innovation and accelerate the adoption of electric vehicle technology. Electric racing vehicles can serve as a test bed for new technologies, materials, and design approaches that can then be applied to the development of more practical and efficient electric vehicles for everyday use.
NUST university’s FERN program is successful in its efforts to create the world’s first electric racing vehicle and that it helps to inspire the development of other innovative electric vehicles in the future.
A team of undergraduate students from the National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) in Pakistan was able to design and build Pakistan’s first-ever electric formula car. It is also noteworthy that the team FERN (Formula Electric Racing NUST), was the only team representing more than just Pakistan in the Formula SAE Lincoln 2016 competition.
The Formula SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) competition is an annual event that challenges teams of engineering students to design, build, and compete with small formula-style vehicles. The competition provides a unique opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and skills in a real-world setting, and encourages them to think creatively and work collaboratively to develop innovative solutions.
