Founded in 1989, the Stanford Solar Car Project is an entirely student-run, non-profit organization fueled by its members’ passion for environmentally sustainable technology. We provide a unique opportunity for Stanford students to gain valuable hands-on engineering and business experience while raising community awareness of clean energy vehicles. Every two years, the team designs, builds and races a solar car across the Australian Outback in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.


In 2013, our team finished 4th overall and we were North America’s No. 1 team. In 2015, we cut our time behind the leading team in half and are more competitive than ever going into the next race.

eVe is the worlds fastest electric car over 500km and in 2016 will become the first road legal solar sports car in Australia. eVe represents a shift in solar-powered transport from conceptual, purpose-built race cars to those capable of meeting commercial vehicle standards of performance, comfort and safety.

eVe demonstrates the viability of solar technology in the emerging electric vehicle market and how Australian students can make an impact with global significance.
