Car futures collide in conquering solar cruiser

Adelaide-based Cohda Wireless today demonstrated its world-leading “connected vehicle” technology in the Stella solar car, which won the inaugural Cruiser Class in last week’s 3000km World Solar Challenge.

The Dutch-designed four-seater Stella solar car is billed as the world’s first sun-powered family car.
