MFE1.5 was the teams second fully electric FSAE race car. True to it's name, the car was heavily based off of the MFE1 vehicle. In fact, the team took advantage of the rules commitee's offer to use a second year chassis without penalties. This allowed efforts to be pourred into the electrical systems. MFE1.5 managed to save 33kgs (73lbs) over its predecesssor by switching to a more efficient permanent magnet motor and creating a completely custom electronics system.
