Driving the Future
“SOPHIE” philosophy
Since 2009, IVE Engineering staff and students have been working on a solar power vehicle project to support the initiatives of green transportation. The project has evolved in generations from a small beginning to a self-developed solar car running 3000km in Australia in the renowned international solar car competition – World Solar Challenge (WSC). Their engineering passion to perfect the design, the comprehensive planning and the perseverance to overcome the barriers in the race have all enabled the team to achieve third runner- up in the “GoPro Adventure Class” in WSC 2013, third runner-up in the “Cruiser Class” in WSC 2017 and third place in the "Cruiser Class" in WSC 2019.
