The Solar Team Eindhoven explains a little more about the Stella Solar cars design:
“The design of the car of the future has to meet the needs of modern consumers,”-”The car must be capable of transporting a family from the Netherlands to France in one day, it needs to be suitable for the daily commute to work, and it needs to achieve all this in comfort.”-”Since the Solar Team Eindhoven wants to contribute to the development of a car of the future, the design demands more than just a focus on speed,”-”Comfort, ease of use, and feasibility are all key terms.”
