Jumbo Down Under

Extremely light, extremely spacious and extremely durable. These were the requirements for the storage solution in the front doors of the futuristic "thyssenkrupp blue.cruiser". And Jumbo-Textil from Sprockhövel fulfilled them. And so the team installed the elastic storage net in the silver blue solar cell vehicle.

 

The net provided room for everything that had to be handy during a tour across the southern continent. In view of indoor temperatures of 40 to 50 degrees, drinks are the main need. However, sunglasses, sunscreen, tissues and many other items also need to be stowed away. Thus, the net made a humble contribution to the success of the SolarCar and its team, which reached the finish line in Adelaide in South Australia on day 6. At the World Solar Challenge, not the fastest vehicle, but the most energy-efficient one wins. Of the 13 vehicles that participated in the race, only three reached the finish line. The blue.cruiser team came in second.
