Eindhoven University of Technology had already some activities in the field of electric driving back in the eighties. The most recent developments start in 2009/10, with the birth of the full battery electric  light weight VW Lupo EL. Soon after, we were the first with a full electric Formula Racing car, developed by our Racing Team Eindhoven. The student team TU/ecomotive participated in the 2013 EcoMarathon, as the first group of Bachelor Automotive Students. Recently, the unique world’s first solar-powered family car Stella from the Solar Team Eindhoven became world champion in the Cruiser Class in Australia.

At the TU/e we were also the first to make a solar powered charging station on our campus at the end of 2012.

Thanks to Dr. Igo Besselink for making the nice picture and overview above.
