PESHAWAR (Web Desk) – A group of electrical engineering students from CECOS University of Information Technology and Emerging Sciences have designed a solar-powered environmental-friendly car, with a speed of up to 80 kilometres per hour.

According to the details, the solar panels installed on the car would provide sufficient energy to the car to go from Gul Bahar area to Hayatabad without petrol or CNG. The car can run for 25 kilometres on a fully charged battery.

The five-membered team comprising of Ibrarullah, Ahmad Yousha,Muhammad Ghufran, Izaz Ahmad, and Ihsanullah devised the car as part of their final year project.

Detailing about the project, Ibrarullah said the frequent use of fossil fuels as a source of energy is also triggering climate changes, leading to increase in the temperature of the earth, Express Tribune reported.

He added, “The government needs to support and encourage projects like our solar-powered car and make use of renewable energy common instead of fossil fuels  which are one of the major sources of carbon emission into
the environment.”

The students have also installed a plug-in charging port into the car. “Everyone can simply charge the car at their homes or any other place where electricity is available,” Ibrarullah said.

Moreover, the car is supported by android application. Ignition, windows and the solar panel adjustment can also be controlled by an android smartphone.
