Duke Electric Vehicles


Our Mission

To promote creative, innovative, and sustainable solutions and compete in the annual Shell Eco-Marathon in an effort to quell climate change.

We are a Duke University student organization. Our members come from various backgrounds and academic disciplines.  Learn more here.


What is the Shell Eco-Marathon?  It's a competition that awards efficiency; the victors are not the fastest or the most agile, but the ones who use the least energy to complete a race track.  Participants build vehicles specifically designed to weigh the least and roll the best, all while carrying real passengers.

Ready to roll!

We compete with over 40 other teams in our category, but over 120 teams from across both American Continents participate in the Eco-Marathon.


We have a history of growth and success. In our 4 years at the competition, we placed 10th, 3rd, 2nd, and 2nd again.

This car is the latest in a series of our successes.
