Founded in 1931, Bridgestone is a multinational tire manufacturer that delivers a wide variety of tires to customers around the world, including tires for cars, trucks, buses, aircrafts, motorcycles and more. The company also manufactures solar vehicle-specific “ECOPIA with ologic” tires, which App State’s Team Sunergy has used for both of its solar cars — Apperion and ROSE — since 2016. Bridgestone has played a major role in allowing App State to compete in, and win, the American Solar Challenge. To further promote solar vehicles, the company hosts the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge every two years, in which solar cars race 3,000 kilometers through Australia over a span of five days.
