Past Vehicles

Team PrISUm has a rich heritage of solar cars spanning over two decades. Most of the cars are currently being stored at our facilities but we are beginning to run out of space. If you know a museum or another organization that would be interested in taking one for public display, please contact us at solarcar@prisum.org.
