PROTON Green Mobility Challenge 2012

PROTON Green Mobility Challenge 2012 (PGMC2012) is an initiative of PROTON, together with Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (AIM), to promote electric vehicles. Towards that, a total of ten teams from the various universities were shortlisted to compete in this inaugural challenge. The teams will be competing to build the best performing electric vehicle based on a standard second generation Proton Saga.

For this "Cabaran Mobiliti Hijau PROTON 2012", teams are each given one car, a battery set, a motor and controller unit, a telemetric unit and RM20,000 seed fund to convert their machine. They have about nine months to complete a working model, which will then be tested at the Sepang International Circuit in four categories: furthest distance, quarter-mile acceleration, fastest time for two laps and maximum velocity (V-max).

One of the team is from Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM). The team, called I.C.E. Terminator, is made of researchers, technicians and students from Fakulti Kejuruteraan & Alam Bina (FKAB). It is headed by Dr. Wan Mohd Faizal Wan Mahmood.
