The Next Generation
Vehicles designed for practicality and acceptance in a given market segment whilst recognising the imperatives of sustainable transport. Changing the way we think about what we drive and what fuels we use, 2021 will see the fifth running of the Cruiser Class, which is a tribute to the inaugural event.
Max. Length: 5m
Max. Width: 2.2m
Max. Solar Array: 5m2
Wheels: At least 4
Passengers: At least 1
Stages: 3 (each 1,200km without recharging)
What can we expect from entries in the Cruiser Class in 2021?
With determinants of success including payload, energy consumption and a subjective element of 'practicality', entrants are faced with the real-world challenge faced by designers around the world: what will end users (in this case, guest judges) find attractive and give the design a desirable point of difference?
