New solar powered cars tested in the Australian outbackJanuary 26th, 2008 - 2:10 pm ICT by admin
Washington, Jan 26 (ANI): New solar powered cars, which show off an improvement in elecric vehicle design, have been tested at the World Solar Challenge in Australia.
This event was an important eco-race, where 38 teams comprising of university students and hobbyist-engineers, raced their cutting-edge solar cars for five days across the Australian outback.
The region has some of the worlds most grueling terrains to race on.
In order to survive the rugged outback, the solar racers built vehicles that showed off some of the best in electric vehicle design, with extreme energy efficiency and incredible aerodynamics as their top priorities. (ANI)
