Sleipner is a part of KTH Eco Cars at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology. The goal is to design and construct a car that will compete in the Prototype class of the Shell Eco Marathon. Project Sleipner was started autumn 2010 to replace the previous Prototype class car Agilis. The body and the chassis has been developed from scratch because of earlier problems with weight and vehicle dynamics.
Parallel to the Sleipner project at KTH is the Elba project for the
Urban concept class.
