The Phoenix on the Circuit of the Americas in Austin, TX


The OSUSVT is a team of Oregon State University students working together to design, build, and race solar-powered vehicles. We are dedicated to providing hands-on experience with solar-electric vehicles, and offer educational outreach in sustainability through direct interaction with the community and industry.

The OSUSVT is currently maintaining/improving upon the Phoenix, our current vehicle, and designing on our next vehicle for the 2016 American Solar Challenge & Formula Sun Grand Prix and the 2017 World Solar Challenge.
