Building on the success of Endeavour, our team’s first solar car, we designed her successor, SR-2, Odyssey. This car incorporates 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 help our team build this car, please check out SR 2’s sponsors.
