      Solar energy has great importance since it is clean, reliable and renewable. Solar-powered cars enable the car to start with the solar energy by transforming the energy, which they receive from the sun, into the electrical energy by means of photovoltaic panels and giving that energy to the engine. In this study, a solar-powered vehicle was designed and its prototype was built. Apart from the design of the solar-powered vehicle, the materials used, its manufacture and driving performance were researched by doing tests.
