2013 Classes

The Bridgestone World Solar Challenge is primarily a design competition to find the world’s most efficient electric car.  The biennial Bridgestone World Solar Challenge seeks to inspire some of the brightest young people on the planet to address the imperatives of sustainable transport. 

For the first time in the history of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge we saw the introduction of three distinct classes, each with their own parameters, stages and goals.

The three classes were wonderfully represented and without doubt the diversity of solar EVs and their differing design philosophies captured the interest of the global media, whose coverage in 2013 was extensive.
