After shooting a promotional video on campus, some members of our pose team with the car outside Marston Hall, the College of Engineering HQ here at UMass.
UMass SMV revolves around teamwork. From developing the body and engines to cleaning the shop, we work together to obtain the best results. We’re lucky to have such a great group this year!

We are glad to be getting off to a great start this semester with the super mileage vehicle. Many of the design objectives from the fall are on their way to completion this semester. We are excited to continue with projects such as the new rolling resistance tire testing machine in addition to working on adapting a new engine to our existing chassis. The team has a great semester ahead of itself and June will be here before we know it! Stay tuned for future updates and progress on the 2015 UMass Super Mileage Vehicle.
