Aussie Solar Electric Car Reaches Crowd-Funding Goal
Australia's world record-breaking solar electric car is set to become street legal after a successful Pozible campaign saw UNSW's Sunswift team raise AU$30,000 to rebuild the vehicle.
Sunswift eVe is the fifth-generation electric car designed and built by the student-led University of New South Wales Solar Racing Team, based out of Sydney. After breaking a world landspeed record in July (for fastest electric vehicle over 500 kilometres travelling on a single charge) the team of undergraduate engineers is now working to get the car out on the streets.
Sunswift launched its Pozible campaign on December 1 and reached its funding goal of AU$30,000 in just 10 days. The funding total continues to grow and the team is hoping to edge higher towards its AU$100,000 budget by the campaign deadline before Christmas.
