Solar Team Eindhoven

An Autonomous Charging Station on Wheels or the Stella Era: the solar car of the future. That’s how the TU/e students of the Solar Team Eindhoven presented their solar car in 2019. Solar Team Eindhoven consists of a group of tremendously enthusiastic TU/e students with a mutual passion for the transportation of tomorrow. That is precisely why AAE has been sponsoring the successful student team for several years in a row.

We believe that by getting the maximum out of the Sun, mobility can be more than the problem; it can be part of the solution.

This successful story began in 2013 with Stella, the world’s first solar-powered family car and with winning the World Solar Challenge in Australia. After this, AAE quickly became a sponsor of the student team. In addition to sharing our knowledge and facilities, we brought the team in contact with our extensive network of suppliers. That way, with our knowledge and experience, we have contributed to innovation in sustainable transportation and we are enormously proud of this.


We build solar-powered family cars that take the next step towards sustainable mobility. Stella Era is the latest addition to the Stella Family and stands out with her capacity to get the maximum out of the Sun.


In October 2019, Solar Team Eindhoven’s ‘Stella Era’ became World Champion in the Cruiser Class of the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. But that’s not the end of the story… Solar Team Eindhoven is continuously working on developing innovative technologies that push the limits of what is possible.
