Michelin Challenge Design 2013 competition deadline next Friday

Fri, 25 May 2012

The Michelin Challenge Design 2013 competition deadline is fast approaching – you only have until 1 June to submit your designs.

The theme of this year's competition is ‘HALF! Lightweight with a Passion', with entrants being asked to explore lightweight vehicle development by designing a family vehicle for four to six people. 

The design has to adhere to consumers' safety and comfort needs as well as usability on current road infrastructure and production feasibility using modern technology, materials, powertrain solutions or manufacturing solutions.

Transportation designers, including OEM and suppliers, studio designers, consultants, design schools, students and individual designers are all encouraged to submit their designs as soon as possible.

The winning designs will be displayed at the Michelin Challenge Design-NAIAS in Detroit after being picked by a panel of international design professionals and teachers.

For more information visit the Michelin Challenge Design 2013 website.
