This year's Shell Eco-marathon Asia saw the largest Singapore contingent ever, with 10 futuristic cars from seven tertiary institutions competing to be the most energy-efficient in the region.

Contenders from Singapore included a first-time entrant in newcomer Temasek Polytechnic, new cars from institutions like Ngee Ann Polytechnic, as well as returning teams from universities such as Nanyang Technological University and Singapore University of Technology and Design.

2018 marks the end of the global festival's two-year tenure in Singapore. Ms. Goh Swee Chen, Chairman of Shell Singapore, said, "It has been an enriching experience discussing bright ideas and innovation while working with various stakeholders to map the future of Asian mobility."

"This is not the end of the road for this festival in Asia. The Make the Future campaign carries on throughout our region through different activities, and the 2019 venue will be announced in due course. I wish the next host country every success," she added.
