e-Cat

Learn about our first ever electric car and its mobile charging station.

E-Cat's history

The idea of the E-Cat came about after winning 1st place in the solar car challenge on classic division in 2018. The team had the idea of diving into a field that had yet to be explored by our program, the Electric-Solar Division of the solar car challenge.


In this division the cars have a much more restricted battery capacity, require a relatively large chassis, and they are required to carry two people.
