Welcome to Team Chimera
Started in the year 2006, Team Chimera is the first group in India to successfully transcend into the automotive sector of hybrid and electric technology. 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, apart from a dedicated team to look after the management and business development aspects of the team. Team Chimera has, till date, undertaken various ventures, which include: E-volve Triple Powered Vehicle(TPV), Hybrid Auto Rickshaw, a plugin hybrid from the Electric Vehicle - REVA and the latest 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, Formula Green and Formula Bharat have been immensely successful and we continue to strive for progress and expansion in these environment friendly sectors.
