A team of 13 NTNU students have developed and built a car to compete in the Shell Eco-Marathon 2012 competition. This master project is a continuation of the specialization project done in the autumn semester 2011. Production started in February and the car was ready on the start line the 18th of May. Out of 22 competing teams in the battery-electric category, the DNV Fuel Figher 2 came in 5th place. The best result achieved was 163km/kWh which can be calculated into an equivalent of 1581km/liter of gasoline. This report includes the design and production process of all sub systems. In addition project management, system engineering, media and the race itself is described.
