    Impressive!

    It is worth putting the achievements of these vehicles into context. The goal is to move people across Australia as efficiently as possible, measured by the number of person-km per kilowatt-hour of external energy. The only production electric vehicle with the range to practically do so is the Tesla Model S. Analysing how the Tesla Model S would perform in the Cruiser Class, the difference is clear: the Tesla has an efficiency of 29.4 p-km/kWh. Eindhoven manages 270 p-km/kWh -- over nine times the efficiency. These highly efficient Cruiser vehicles are nearly an order of magnitude beyond the current commercial offerings.

    Diesel and gasoline are far more impressive.
    Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    Respectfully disagree. Carrying 4-5 people at an average speed of 50 mph powered by solar is no mean feat. As the note, roughly 10 times the efficiency of the best Tessa on the road.
