the vehicle won the Michelin Cruiser Class for completing 3,000 km journey from Darwin to Adelaide in Australia, and took the first place in the World Solar Challenge.

Many solar-powered vehicles have been made but only for racing. This means Stella is the first ever vehicle made for the road.

The vehicle was designed by a team from Netherlands and they took it to U.S. for a tour to help kick off National Drive Electric Week.

The use of solar-powered equipment is being encouraged the world over to preserve the environment by reducing pollution.
