Building on the success of Endeavour, our team’s first solar car, we are currently in the middle of building her successor, SR-2. Our new car will consist of a four-wheel design containing two motors, an aluminum frame, a carbon fiber aerobody, and drastic improvements in aerodynamics, solar cells, and handling.
The creation of a vehicle that runs on the Sun is no easy task and could not be accomplished without the generous help of our wonderful sponsors. To see the great companies that have dedicated their time, money, or resources to our team, please check out SR 2’s sponsors.
