Who are the four drivers of JU Solar Team? In this second teaser, you can see how the drivers go into the sauna to simulate the feeling of being in the canopy of the solar car while crossing the Australian desert. ☀️⠀ This Friday, the last part and also the drivers will be presented. Are you ready? 😀

Are you ready for Jönköping University’s fourth-generation solar-powered car, Axelent?⠀ On August 30th it is finally time to show our new solar car to the world ☀️⠀ Check out the event on Facebook! ➡️ https://buff.ly/2Lzka48

One of the most frequent questions we get is "Who is going to drive the car?". Well, your wait is almost over as we are on the verge of disclosing the chosen four. ⠀ In this first teaser, you can see some of the tests that our drivers have to go through. If you can't work out who they are in this video, the next teaser will be up on Tuesday. Stay tuned. 😉

Our battery, tools, camping gear and various other equipment is now on it's way to Australia 😀 ⠀ We would also like to express a big 'thank you' to Nefab for providing us with boxes that fit all of the things we're sending Down Under.
