Swinburne helps develops the world’s first solar-powered exotic sports car

Fashion is fleeting but solar-powered style is forever, if Swinburne University of Technology has anything to say about it.

The engineering team at Swinburne University of Technology, led by Swinburne’s electric vehicle expert Dr Clint Steele, is working with EVX Ventures, an electric vehicle startup, to bring the vision to life. Immortus is a limited-edition, solar-powered electric sports car currently in development. The car will reach 100km/h in seven seconds and will have the ability to cruise all day at 60km/h.

Even without government funding, the project teams have made great progress to push this vehicle beyond concept, using Swinburne’s considerable expertise in both solar energy research and electric vehicle technology.

Immortus is a promising development for the future of solar-powered vehicles, and proves that you don’t have to sacrifice style for sustainability.
