Since 1989, the University of Michigan Solar Car Team has been designing, building, and racing America's best solar vehicles. With 5 consecutive National Championships, 8 overall, 5 Top-3 World finishes, and 1 international championship, we are America's number one team. Our team's legacy of excellence has been upheld over it's history.

This year, we celebrate our team's 25th anniversary of solar car racing. Join us on our journey to win the 2015 World Solar Challenge.


Driven by 1 in-hub electric motor connected to a custom-designed and built battery pack charged only by the power of the sun, our cars have been at the top of the field for 25 years.
