Vehicle Categories

Formula Hybrid has three vehicle categories: Hybrid, Hybrid-In-Progress (HIP), and Electric-only.


The Hybrid category is the most challenging of all the SAE Collegiate Design Series engineering competitions, typically requiring thousands of hours of engineering and development time.


HIP is for hybrids that are still under development, such as a two-year design and build cycle. Hybrid-In-Progress vehicles can be driven on electric power.


Electric-only is for vehicles designed for battery/electric drive, and closely parallels the new FSAE Electric rules. Student teams wishing to enter a FSAE Electric vehicle in the Formula Hybrid Electric-only class should be aware that there are some rules that are different. Read all of the rules carefully!
