WFR19-E

The 2019 car was designed with three goals in mind, Simplicity, Integration, Performance: In this year’s design phase, emphasis was placed on designs that fulfilled their purpose without adding complexity, cost, or undue risk. Following a history of local optima and weak subsystem collaboration, the line between subsystems has been blurred, creating one high-performing unit. Finally, given the team’s ambitious scope to complete our first EV and build infrastructure, “performance” emphasizes the intent to compete, not participate. Supplementing WFR’s design goals, the manufacturing phase embodied the quote “You don’t have enough time to work fast”. This has led the team to manufacture a vehicle with what we believe is world-class build quality.
