The Formula Electric Racing NUST (FERN) squad has made an impression at Formula Student Russia 2021, following its recent success in Formula Student UK 2021.

Despite fighting against many other teams from around the world, the team came in second place in the event.

All individual events, including the Engineering Design event, Business Plan Presentation, Cost event, and EV Category, were won by a team of National University of Science and Technology (NUST) students.

Students from NUST created and assembled the formula electric car. The open-wheeled, open cockpit, single-seater Formula racing automobile has inspired the vehicle design.

The Electric Vehicle (EV) has a 5 kWh battery with a range of 22 kilometres. It has a top speed of 120 kph and can accelerate from a standstill to 100 kph in just 4.5 seconds.

The FERN team finished third in the Engineering Design category of the Formula Student United Kingdom 2021 (FSUK21) competition two months ago. FERN came in 18th place overall in the FSUK21, out of a total of 65 teams from around the world, and was the only team from Pakistan to have a project car based on an all-electric engine.

The present podium finish is yet another huge achievement for the FERN team in such a prestigious tournament, and it is a feather in the cap not just for the students and institute participating, but also for the entire country. The competition was held virtually, with the judges viewing the vehicle’s footage.
