What is the design philosophy behind your solar car?

Our design philosophy behind our solar car lies in our car name;
Striving: To make strenuous efforts toward any goal and strike for success
Obligation: A commitment to design and build for future generations
Partnership: Create a partnership between students, teaching staff and professionals from the industries
Harmony: To create a better and sustainable world, to create harmony
Innovation: Continue to innovate and push the technological boundaries
Exploration: Adventure to unknown lands with our design.

What is unique about your solar car?

Sophie 6s went one step further to not only be built to win the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, but also to promote to the public that solar cars can be the future of transportation. We’ve invited designers to re-imagine the interior design of our solar car to be light weight but appealing to the public.

Why does your team value participating in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge?

Our team value the opportunities to exchange the solar car, smart mobility and green transportation knowledge and skills with all the teams around the world. We also value the opportunity to create a connection and partnership with the other solar car teams and institutes around the world.

What is the one thing your team is looking forward to when you visit Australia?

To explore the outback and night skies.
