Eco Friendly Transport

Rafi Alam, a 28 year old guy from New Delhi who has designed this Eco-friendly two wheeler that can run on both solar and wind energy. He is supposed to have spent two years to design this scooter. Since this scooter operates on solar and wind energy, there is no room for any pollution. Hope this provides a solution to the energy crisis that the world is facing especially our country (India).

Design of the Scooter:

1) A solar Panel is installed on the front of the vehicle.
2) A fan is fitted on the front wheel cap to to utilize wind power.
3) There is a battery which gets charged by the above two methods.
4) Once the battery is fully charged, it provides a millage of 80 to 100 km at a speed of 50-60 km/hr.
5) This scooter is charged at a price of US $ 934 or around Indian Rs.40000/-
The scooter is operated by a button start. The charged battery drives the motor which drives the scooter. The scooter has a small petrol tank which can be used in case of emergencies. The battery also gets charged simultaneously when the vehicle is running.
About Rafi Alam: He has finished his formal education only up to class 9th. He is currently working as a mechanic at a car workshop in Delhi. This is his passion and a dream. He wants to replicate this technology on four-wheelers also.
