McGill Formula Electric is an engineering design team that designs, manufactures, and competes a formula-style, open wheel, electric prototype with a full CFRP monocoque. The team strives to understand, develop, and implement the latest in green technology in order to produce the most competitive electric prototype and to be able to enter the workforce equipped to engineer a more sustainable future. This project stems from the continuous improvements made over the course of 20 years in McGill’s FSAE Chapter, and even a merger between two very competitive teams.


The Merger

In September 2017, McGill Formula Electric and the McGill Racing Team merged into one single Design Team with the name McGill Formula Electric. Due to advancements in material development and the market evolving towards renewable resources, both teams elected to combine knowledge and resources to produce a single formula-style, open wheel, electric prototype with a full CFRP monocoque.

McGill Racing Team

The McGill Racing Team (MRT) was established in 1994 and, throughout the years, built 18 combustion cars. The team competed in FSAE Michigan, FSAE Lincoln, Formula North, Toronto FSAE Shootout, and Formula Student Germany.

McGill EV

McGill EV was established in 2013 and built 4 fully electric cars before merging with MRT.
