By Brian Spaen

A group of students at the Eindhoven University of Technology from the Netherlands have been able to win three world titles at a solar-powered racing event in Australia. They’re looking for another victory with their new five-seat vehicle called the Stella Vie. Students believe that this car could be the future as it can provide ample space for a family and can also achieve incredibly fast speeds.

The racing event is known as the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge, which takes place between October 8th and the 16th. It’s a bi-annual showcase of customized solar-powered electric vehicles throughout the world. The track is 3,000 kilometers long, or roughly 1,864 miles, which is a lengthy venture for these solar-powered vehicles from Darwin, Northern Territory, to Adelaide, South Australia.
