The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge may be “the toughest solar race on earth” but the young university engineers taking part aren’t afraid of a challenge – and neither are we. That’s why Covestro will be serving as the main sponsor of Team Sonnenwagen from RWTH Aachen University and FH Aachen in this year’s World Solar Challenge.
After reaching the finish line at the race in 2017 as “Best Newcomer,” the team has been working harder than ever to roll out a second-generation Sonnenwagen, and we’re excited to partner with them and push the boundaries of what’s possible in sustainable e-mobility solutions of the future.
Using our innovative materials and technical expertise, we’re helping the students develop smart solutions to improve the Sonnenwagen’s safety, weight and aerodynamics. The result? A vehicle that brings us one step closer to traveling at the speed of light.
