The Punch Powertrain Solar Team, a team of 17 engineering students, is setting a mark for applications in the industry of electrical driving. All of this is driven by the powerful design strategy: Performance Through Reliability.

The Punch Powertrain Solar Team is a team of 17 engineering students which has taken the challenge to design, produce and construct their own solar vehicle: the Indupol One. They started from scratch to design the car and in cooperation with their partner companies they succeeded in building an extraordinary vehicle. Not only traditional design criteria were implemented, also the latest, sometimes even still experimental technologies and state of the art components are used. They expose what is already possible in the industry of electrical driving.
