In 2017, the Sonnenwagen Aachen team competed in the World Solar Challenge in Australia and established itself as the "Best Newcomer". This was followed by third place at the European Solar Challenge in 2018. Now the team will compete once again at the World Solar Challenge in Australia's Outback. For two years, students from RWTH Aachen University and FH Aachen together with the main sponsor Covestro AG developed and constructed the new solar-powered car. The "Sonnenwagen" project was actively supported by ISEA, among others. Together with NRW Prime Minister Armin Laschet, the rectors of the FH Aachen and RWTH Aachen as well as the main sponsor Covestro AG, the 140 kph "Covestro Sun Car" was ceremoniously presented to the public on Monday, July 22, 2019, in Hall 1 of RWTH Aachen University.
