Abstract

Passenger transportation accounts for 60 to 70% of energy consumption from transportation activities. The private car is the dominant mode but has a poor energetic performance/ efficiency, although this performance has seen substantial improvements since the 1970s, mainly due to growing energy prices and regulations. Only 12% of the fuel used by a car actually provides momentum, this is purely because of heavy design of vehicles. Heavy design and less occupancy of the car is also one of the major reasons for traffic jam in major cities. In most of the cities heavily designed cars (size & mass wise) are being used by a single person to reach his work place, where most of the energy being generated by the engine/ motor is used to drag self-weight of the car itself and also contributing to traffic conge station on roads. By replacing heavily designed cars with small cars designed for a single/ two persons, can Increase the fuel efficiency of the car by increasing the ratio of mass of human to car and can also reduce traffic problems. This in turn results in less dependence on foreign import fuels and less vehicular pollution in cities. The project involves Design, Procurement, Fabrication, Painting and Testing of a small (single seater) car body, steering gear, seats, break system etc., which is suitable for Electric / Solar energy drive system.
