Eindhoven University’s Solar Team passed the World Solar Challenge with their first family car.
42 teams participated in this year’s race, with Stella Lux the first to receive a starting number.
TU/e previously won the family car category in 2013, which took into account speed, innovation, passenger space, and energy consumption.
The team behind Stella Lux is keen to show their car as a realistic option in sustainable automobility.
The race starts this weekend in Australia, with starting position qualifiers on Saturday. The real race will start in Darwin on Sunday, finishing a week later across the country in Adelaide.
