We have chosen to build our chassis using optimized steel. Our 2015 all carbon fibre Solbritt weighed 230 kilos and our calculations are suggesting this year’s Solveig will be much lighter. Our next generation battery cells have a 30% higher energy density than Solbritt’s generation. We are excited to be able to store so much extra power. The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is the world’s biggest solar-powered car race. It started in 1987 and takes place every other year. In the competition, teams from all over the world are going to drive 3022 kilometers from the north to the south of Australia – from Darwin to Adelaide. The JU Solar Team consists of 25 students. As we come from different JU (Jönköping University) schools we create a diversity of skillsets and we have diffrent tasks to do. We are divided into two teams: Team Engineering and Team Management.
