Team Doraemon Solaemon-Go World Solar Challenge 1993

Solaemon-Go '93


This "Soraemon" was designed by Fujiko F. Fujio himself and was born in 1992. A solar panel is attached to the cloak, with a total length of 5.2m, a total width of 1.98m, and a total height of 1.6m, and the highest speed record is 70km / h. The cockpit for one person is the head part. In fact, he participated in the Australian longitudinal race in 1993, and has a track record of running 3,000km in 10 days in the heat of the heat.

On the 16th, we ran the track of the stadium from 8:50 am before the opening ceremony of the Kawasaki International Tamagawa Marathon. A pamphlet "Soraemon Gekijou Handbook" explaining the Soraemon was also distributed to about 6,000 visitors. Also, on the 23rd, one hour before the kick-off against Kawasaki Frontale vs Gamba Osaka, which is part of the J-League soccer, the track started at noon. It was exhibited in the ground during the match.

What a strong Soraemon issue. By the way, as you all know, a solar car is a type of electric vehicle that runs on electricity generated by solar cells. It was named "Solar Car" because it uses the power of the sun.

Solar cars have a high general recognition rate as a representative of eco-cars. However, at present, it is said that it is difficult to put a solar car into practical use because it is inferior in performance and cost to a gasoline engine car. I hope that the day will soon come when solar cells will develop and the Soraemon will shift from the "future" cat-type car to the "modern".

That Google Translate description, though.

No thanks.
Unfortunately, there's barely any well written article about this car, just like any car from the World Solar Challenge. I originally planned to write my own description, but couldn't because I had a busy day and wanted to suggest this car at April Fools.

Here are my other joke cars:

Sir Vival '58
Aurora '57
Honda Fuya-Jo Concept '99
