Car Body and Chassis Development of UKM CARevo for Perodua Eco-Challenge 2011


Article Preview

This paper presents the development of the UKM Perodua Eco-Challenge vehicle, CARevo in terms of aesthetic design, novel fabrication of car body and superior chassis design. The objective of the competition was to develop a fuel efficient car which was competent to travel the longest distance using 0.5 liter of RON95 fuel with some rules and regulation verified by the Perodua to be followed. The UKM CARevo was powered by a 660cc fuel injection engine with manual 5-speed transmission with the total of 3450 mm, 1500 mm and 1106 mm for its length, wide and height. Several design such as space frame chassis design, composite bodywork result from fiberglass with resin, aerodynamic design of car body and are the key features that is discussed in this paper.
