The solar car of the future
In order to compete in the 2013 World Solar Challenge, Stanford Solar Car Project manufactured Luminos: a grand step made forward to having a highly competitive race-ready solar auto! Just look at the picture. Isn’t that precisely the image you had of “cars of the future” when you were dreaming as a child? Luminos is the beautiful, yet high performance, result of two years of intense project work…Intense, yes, but who said marking history was effortless? Luminos’ standards were set high and the result is up to Stanford’s dedication. To name only a few characteristics that distinguish Stanford’s project: graciously straightforward design and construction, tested to be extremely safe and efficient, outstanding motor and mechanical design , superior aerodynamic properties, highly durable electrical mechanism, etc. Design meets high-level technology meets long-lasting. Stanford is particularly confident about Luminos – as they should be!
