Zero-emission car powered by solar electricity.
The 10th World Solar Challenge has already made many universities unveil their solar-powered cars, with which they hope to bring home the title. The latest to showcase their green wonder is University of Twente, who has unveiled their solar car the 21Revolution. Similar to other cars being showcased for the completion, the 21Revolution will be powered entirely by solar energy and will try to cross the Australian outback in the first place.
The car has been developed by a team of 18 ingenious minds of the Solar Team Twente. The car is designed to have a flexible body structure which carries a solar wing made from thermoplastic elastomer. The choice of the material makes the car lightweight and improves its aerodynamics. The team claims that this year car is 25% more aerodynamic than their previous model.
The strength of the car lies in the tilting wing, which runs along the sun so that the sun’s rays are always perpendicular to the cells. The wing is also equipped with a patented lens system that acts like a magnifying glass to enhance the energy of the rays hitting the on-board solar cells. The team hopes that the lens system will increase the energy generated by solar cells and hence more power will be provided to the car.
