This is the MIT Solar Electric Vehicle Team.

We are a student group at MIT, working under the auspices of the Edgerton Center. Having been around for over 30 years, we have two main goals: 1) to both design, build, and race solar electric vehicles to push the boundaries of innovation, and 2) to use our work to spread the awareness and promotion for a more efficient future. The team draws on a broad range of technical knowledge encompassing all fields of engineering and science; team membership provides an intense educational experience which teaches practical skills impossible to communicate in the classroom environment, turning students into engineers. In addition to providing real-world design and manufacturing experience, involvement in the team develops project management and business skills. The team also gives students the opportunity to work closely with professors and business members, and in turn we hold multiple outreach events to extend our reaches to the community.
