This time also, students of National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) have created country’s first carbon fibre car which gives a 100Km mileage per litre, amazing isn’t it?

The main aim behind the manufacturing of this car was to build an eco-friendly vehicle that gives good mileage and doesn’t harm the environment as conventional vehicles do with their carbon monoxide and hydrocarbon emissions. One of the main reasons behind global warming is toxic emission from the cars.

The ninth edition of the Shell Eco-Marathon will be held in Singapore and will begin on March 7 and end on March 12. It is a global program which attracts and challenges students from around the globe to build and drive energy efficient cars. It is to be noted here that in this particular event a total of 120 students will be participating from around the globe. Moreover, last year a Pakistani team hailing from NUST won the competition, so hopes are high that this time also Pakistani students would do great.
