Michelin Challenge Design 2016: Mobility For All

Michelin Challenge Design 2016: Mobility For All

Michelin has announced the theme for its 2016 Challenge Desig, which is “Mobility for All – Designing for the Next Frontier”. Registration/Entry will begin October 1, 2014.


The news follows the recent announcement of the 2015 Challenge results. This year’s challenge is to design a personal, family or commercial vehicle that provides simple, functional and affordable mobility to an underserved area in Southeast Asia, Central America, Central Africa or an area identified by the designer.

Participants will be able to register beginning October 1, 2014, and then submit their design proposal as two-dimensional sketches, drawings or renderings by June 1, 2015.

The Design Brief

Mobility is essential for personal transport, commerce, growth and access to clean water, health care and services for people around the world. Access to sustainable mobility is one of the cornerstones of economic and social progress, yet hundreds of millions of people have little or no access to mobility.

Just as the Citroen 2CV, Volkswagen Beetle and Ford Model T became iconic vehicles in their respective regions by enabling mobility; your design will help provide mobility to an area in need.

The flexibility, ingenuity, simplicity, ease of use and repair of your vehicle will be among the criteria used in judging the submitted entries.

Michelin Challenge Design will recognize exciting and passionate designs that employ innovative vehicle architecture and technologies, without compromising functionality, safety or comfort. The vehicle’s capabilities must include dimensional specifications and visual detail of the tire/wheel assembly.
