Eindhoven students solar roof powered 5-seater

A team of students at <a href="https://www.tue.nl/en/university/news-and-press/news/21-06-2017-the-sun-as-fuel-students-present-solar-car-for-5-occupants/">Eindhoven University of Technology</a> (TU/e) just unveiled an electric car that seats five and is completely powered by the sun. Called Stella Vie, the vehicle stands apart because it's more efficient than all <a href="http://inhabitat.com/tag/solar-car">solar cars</a> before it. Even with fewer solar panels on its roof, the car is capable of a range of about 1,000 kilometers (621 miles) on a warm summer day.
