Eindhoven University Students Claim First-Ever Fully Solar-Powered Car


News: A team of engineering students from the Eindhoven University of Technology in the Netherlands claim to have created the world's first entirely solar-powered car, the Economic Times reports. Known as the 'Stella', the four-seat car has a trunk and produces electricity as it is being driven. The university claims that the model usually creates more electricity than the car uses, meaning that extra electricity can then be transferred to the national power grid. This has prompted its creators to label the vehicle 'energy-positive'. The group is now seeking to have the car officially certified for road use to prove if it is practical for normal car users.
