SOLAR TEAM SOLARIS
We are a team that was established in 2003 and with the pride of producing Turkey’s first solar-powered vehicle in 2005 we have obtained several achievements in this field and have successfully represented our country abroad since then.
We were the first Turkish team that receives a design award abroad at the Sun Life Design Competition held in Greece. Later, at the “Electric Vehicles Exhibition” held in Klagenfurt, Austria, we attracted attention as the only solar vehicle team.
Moreover, we have degrees in various categories in Formula G races organized for many years in our country. In addition to all of these, we have also participated in races in countries such as France, Belgium, Morocco, Egypt and Australia and achieved first place at the podium level.
Currently we have 12 vehicles, consisting of 7 solar and 5 electric, and the design, analysis and production processes of our vehicles are completely carried out within our team. Except for the battery and solar panel group, we produced all our electrical and mechanical components, particularly our electric motor, by ourselves, and achieved 90% locality rate.
Our latest achievement was Italian Solar Challenge 2022. We finished the challenge in 2nd place.
The other race was Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 19 which is the most prestigious race of its field by crossing 3000km in the continent of Australia, and we were the only Turkish Team that showed up in this race.
As a result, with the support of our sponsors and the endless efforts of our teammates, we aim to save our reputation in the international arena by raising our level further and adding new ones to our achievements.
