Queen’s Solar Vehicle team unveils eleventh vehicle


Celebrating 19 years of solar vehicle excellence, Queen’s University Solar Vehicle Team unveils its eleventh solar vehicle on Wednesday July 25 at 2 pm at the University Club.

The solar powered vehicle is a single-person, three-wheeled car that features aerodynamic design, an upright seating position, and a newly designed carbon-fibre-aluminium composite chassis.

“The unveiling of our new car will represent the culmination of all the hard work and countless hours that have been devoted to this project over the past two years,” says Meghan Cartwright, education manager of Queen’s Solar Vehicle Team.

The public, the car’s sponsors and the media will have an opportunity to see the new vehicle before the team embarks on the 2007 Panasonic World Solar Challenge: a 3,000 km international race that will take place in Australia this October.

“Participating in the Panasonic World Solar Challenge this fall will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity,” says Ms. Cartwright. “We can’t wait to prove ourselves against some of the stiffest competition in the world, and to represent Queen’s, Kingston and Canada.”

The Solar Vehicle Team is a multidisciplinary, student-run design team based in Kingston, Ontario, whose aim is to design and build vehicles that are powered solely by the sun’s energy
