CUER's aim is to win the 2013 World Solar Challenge, the world’s foremost solar endurance race, held in Australia.  Their racing cars showcase cutting-edge sustainable engineering and demonstrate the incredible potential of electric vehicle technologies. By designing a car to run on solar power alone, they are driving the step changes in vehicle efficiency and new technologies for a low-carbon future.

Following the recent rule change for the World Solar Challenge in 2013, CUER has been developing a game-changing new concept. With a dedicated team and the experience gained building a prototype over the past year, they are on track to have a world leading solar vehicle for WSC13.

CUER's team mission is to inspire as well as innovate. This leads them to undertake many outreach programs, both nationally and internationally.
