U.S. develops four solar-powered electric vehicles to last 800km

According to news from the US media autoevolution, solar-powered electric vehicles are constantly being upgraded, but the problem that has always existed is that they can only ride one person. In the near future, Stella will launch a four-seat solar-powered electric car, which will truly realize the concept of solar-electric vehicles.

Solar-powered electric vehicles require high body weight and require light but solid materials; and solar panels need to fully cover the roof to provide enough power for driving, so the body size is also limited. The car can only ride one person.
      In addition, the solar electric vehicles must use most of the power in the power supply during the driving process, so the resistance encountered during the running of the vehicle must be reduced to the minimum. This requires the vehicle to meet the low and narrow requirements in the design. Driving comfort will also be greatly reduced. The two issues of body size and driving experience have existed since the introduction of solar electric vehicles 20 years ago, but some students from the University of Eindhoven in the Netherlands have conducted in-depth studies on these issues and are solving the problem step by step, allowing solar energy to solve this problem. The home of electric vehicles will be realized as soon as possible.

These students conduct research on the basis of the Stella EV-based prototype. Stella's power consumption is relatively small, and it is researched and developed with modern technology. It is of great help to conduct deeper research on the students of Eindhoven University of Technology. They took a year and a half to design and assemble the electric vehicle. Compared with other concept cars, the Stella was assembled on a light-weight pipe structure platform. The body was also lower and more than other solar-electric vehicles. Wide, more aerodynamic elements have also been added to the shape design. This design can install more panels outside the car body to provide more power, while the internal space of the car body can also accommodate more passengers.

The cruising range of this electric vehicle is about 800km, and the maximum speed can reach 120km/h, which is enough for daily commuting. This new type of home electric car caused a lot of buzz in the industry and won a number of international design awards. At present, more and more investors have been attracted and it is expected to put into mass production in the next 5 to 10 years.
