Problem Statement

Pioneering the Newton’s Truck concept

In the ever-evolving landscape of commercial vehicles, the Ashok Leyland Hackathon presents an unprecedented opportunity to revolutionize the industry. As the global automotive sector competes fiercely for advancements in fuel efficiency, cost-effectiveness, smart systems, and safety, our focus is on the transformative Newton Truck concept. Rooted in Newton's second law, this visionary initiative redefines energy consumption in vehicles, emphasizing the role of acceleration and vehicle weight. Instead of merely relying on larger batteries for range, we're committed to addressing key energy loss mechanisms such as tire and transmission losses. Join our ecosystem of visionaries, universities, and innovators to drive the future of commercial vehicles. Don't miss the chance to be at the forefront of this transformation – participate in the Ashok Leyland Hackathon now!
