MIT SEVT Nimbus Display

The MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team designs, builds, and races solar powered vehicles. The team presents its most recently built car, Nimbus, which raced and won both the 2021 and 2022 American Solar Challenge.

Every two years, MIT SEVT designs and manufactures solar powered vehicles by scratch. These vehicles are road legal and run entirely from solar power. The team races its vehicles in the American Solar Challenge, a miles-based endurance race that follows routes across the country such as the Oregon Historic Trail and the Santa Fe Trail.

Nimbus is the team’s most recently built car. Completed in 2021, Nimbus raced in the American Solar Challenge for 2021 and 2022, winning both years’ races in the single-occupant category. Now, MIT SEVT is transitioning to building its first multi-occupant vehicle, which will race in 2024. This new style comes with a variety of design and manufacturing challenges, but the team is eager to create a new car and become better engineers in the process.
