Welcome to Team Chimera

About Us

Started in the year 2006, Team CHIMERA is the first group in India to successfully transcend into this automotive sector. We are a multi-dimensional team comprising of students with back grounds in various engineering disciplines such as Electrical and Electronics, Mechanical, and Computer Science. Project Chimera has, till date, undertaken five ventures: E-volve Triple Powered Vehicle(TPV), Hybrid Auto Rickshaw, a plugin hybrid from the Electric Vehicle - REVA and the latest duo being building a Formula Hybrid race car and Formula Electric race car from scratch.

With the cost of gasoline skyrocketing to new heights and the predictions concerning its depletion within the next 20 years, electric and hybrid automotive technology provides a logical solution.

Our participation in recent events such as Formula Hybrid Competition, USA, Formula Electric Competition, Italy and Student Formula, Japan have been immensely successful and we continue to strive for progress and expansion in these environment friendly sectors.
