Michelin rewards the students of the H2politO Team of the Politecnico di Torino
As a sponsor of the H2politO student team of the Politecnico di Torino, Michelin has delivered 10 scholarships to students who have distinguished themselves in the project activities and the realization of the vehicles that participated in the various competitions, related on the occasion by the group of Turin University.
The team was the winner of the Shell Eco-marathon 2018 in Paris and London, in a competition where energy-efficient futuristic vehicles designed by students from Universities and High Schools across Europe were challenged on energy consumption.
Winner was the vehicle able to travel the most distance possible with the equivalent of one liter of fuel or one kWh or one cubic meter of energy.
The IDRAkronos prototype came second in London where it covered 755 km/m3 (of hydrogen) corresponding to 2294 km/L (of equivalent petrol), while it won in Paris covering 735 km/m3 (of hydrogen) corresponding to 2233 km/L (of equivalent petrol).
Michelin is a technical partner and sole supplier of the special tires used by the Team, which offer a rolling resistance six times lower than the Michelin Energy Saver road tire.
