GOING THE DISTANCE
To achieve anything in this game you must be prepared to dabble in the boundary of disaster. – Sterling Moss
This story starts with its inception in the year 2012. Battling through the enormous arenas in the automotive world, the birth of Infieon Supermileage took place. A group of crazy enthusiasts with the aim of making this world a better place, traveled miles and came up with an idea to achieve the impossible – the most fuel-efficient car in India.
Yes, you heard it right!
Have you ever wondered if your vehicle could travel miles without refueling? Wouldn’t that be a great and efficient way to preserve our resources! Give it a thought.
Infieon Supermileage is the official team of the SRM University that takes part in different editions of the Shell Eco-Marathon. Shell Eco-Marathon is an official event that takes place at a national as well as an international level, witnessing the most fuel-efficient cars throughout the globe over more than 120 countries.
Since its inception, we have come up with a total of 7 fuel-efficient cars the country has ever witnessed. Our most recent vehicle – “ASTRIA” that took part in the Shell Eco-Marathon India 2019, held in the month of November, was awarded the 2nd most fuel-efficient car in the country registering a mileage of 148.2 km per liter of petrol. The team was also honored as the Communication Award Winners portraying their immense effort and hard work in the making of ASTRIA.
Fuel Efficiency has always been one of the burning issues throughout the world and will continue to be so thereafter. There is nothing in this world that doesn’t work with the help of the resources provided by nature. Many automotive industries are coming up with various solutions and technological advancements to tackle this problem. But is this a concern for them alone?
Don’t you think we as humans here, have a part to play as well?
Gandhiji always quoted – “Be the change you wish to see in this world”. This change is nothing but the urge to make the world a better place. It all begins with one single step and that is the determination within yourself. Come along, take rightful, and contribute to this nature of ours.
We all know no one is perfect in this world. Well, let me tell you we’ve had our equal shares. Our journey has not been a smooth one, to be honest.
Tremendous efforts and hardships, ups and downs define us as what we are today. It’s not just the passion to build something, but to go through with a smile on the face is what we call success.
Team Infieon, in this short period of 7 years has risen exponentially through technological advancements and a vision for reducing curbing emissions. With the constant hard work, determination, and never-ending passion of the team members, the team will be able to achieve all its future endeavors.
“Strength does not come from winning. Your struggle develops your strengths.”
