Nuon solar challenge 4

The Dutch solar car Nuna4 won the 20th World Solar Challenge, a 3,000 km race through the Australian outback. The Nuna4 took 33 h 17 min for the race and was the fourth win for the Dutch team Nuon Solar, which holds the race record at 29 hours and 11 minutes. The sun-powered cars from around the world raced from Darwin on Australia’s tropical north coast to Adelaide on the country’s southern coast. Travelling only during daylight, sometimes in scorching temperatures, Nuna4’s average speed was 90.7 km/h.

Read up on the team as we reported some time back.
