The Victron Energy solar and human powered car The Victron Energy solar and human powered car

Victron Energy has helped sponsor the mechatronic faculty of the Technological University of Tijuana, Mexico, donating equipment to power and monitor their solar and human-powered car for the Solar Challenge Chihuahua.

The university team achieved fifth place with the car performing ‘perfectly’ in a race time of 4:08 hours over a distance of 58km.

Let’s hope there wasn’t too much traffic on the roads that day, as Victron Energy says ‘all budding engineers have to start somewhere’.
