As swift as an arrow through the Australian Outback with the 'Covestro Sonnenwagen'

In comparison to 2017, the new Sonnenwagen  is lighter  more aerodynamic  and even more  more efficient. With its 890  solar panels the “Covestro Sonnenwagen” generates an optimum of 1 KW capacity. This energy can be stored temporarily in its  battery, which will take the  Sonnenwagen  500 km through the desert on a single charge. The self-developed hub motor provides an overall capacity of ca. 95 percent and can accelerate the solar  car to a top speed  of 140 km/h!

Bring on the outback!
