Amprius Powered Top 4 Solar Cars in Prestigious World Solar Challenge
THE WORLD'S GREATEST INNOVATION AND ENGINEERING CHALLENGE CONTRIBUTING TO A MORE SUSTAINABLE MOBILITY FUTURE
Amprius’ partner solar cars swept the top four places in the 2023 Bridgestone World Solar Challenge.
Our batteries outperformed throughout the most rigorous solar car race in the world, requiring teams to design, develop, and pilot a solar-powered vehicle along a tumultuous 3,000-kilometer transcontinental Australian route with extreme winds and low light from the northern city of Darwin to the southern city of Adelaide.
The four vehicles powered by Amprius ultra-high-energy cells “reported around 30% better capacity in the battery for roughly the same amount of weight of units used by other competitors,” resulting in finishing in the top 4 places. – Cosmos Magazine
