Pakistani solar panel car – Necessity is the mother of invention

17 914

I’m not getting a free meal at all, they cost me each time, sometimes with heavy budget. If you are not getting lunch, dinner, even breakfast free of cost or without spending a single penny, why would you miss a chance to ride for free? Actually that would be more than Bingo if my car could run continuously without spending a single rupee on fuel. I’m sure all of you would love to have a vehicle like this at home? Perhaps, Solar panels, which seem expensive and involves a lot of maintenance, may get you closer to the final answer.

Electricity in Pakistan and energy crisis has made our lives miserable. Home solar energy systems are being introduced whereas; cars can also run on solar panels because people are trying to find ingenious solutions to energy crisis. Recently, Mr. Aslam Azad has designed the solar panel car which is manufactured by Mr. Ahmad Aslam in the capital of Pakistan.

This successful solar panel car design totally ran on solar energy, but this is just a beginning with it, as initial version is successful and under testing.

A decade ago, when CNG was introduced in Pakistan millions of cars equipped with CNG/Gas kits just because of one reason and that was to save money as petrol prices were starting to reach at high rates and CNG offered better mileage.  We became one of the top listed CNG consumers in the world. Ten years ago, our Govt. was completely in favor of CNG and encouraged people to use it as a cheap alternative and now scenario has been changed, just like overhauling a car, they can’t fulfill CNG’s demand because of short fall and managing supply across the country.

A  Pakistani with single handed efforts, once again standing to reshape the scenario that what happened with our nation’s decade ago, as someone has to strike back and sort out the problems. Mr. Aslam Azad a Pakistani Business man spent some $500,000 from his pocket to resolve the problem and built a solar powered car.

Five years back, when Aslam Azad made this mission the aim was clear to fight against CNG crisis and give a proper cheap way to Pakistanis as an alternative to petrol. This car is powered by kinetic and solar energy and its engine become a generator when the car is cruising. A day before charging this car, it can run for 50 miles while, this ratio can be increased five time more with replacement of current battery on which it is running.

This solar panel car has another amazing feature that you can also charge it with direct sources of electricity. Mr. Aslam Azad is confident that the government will issue him a license of manufacturing these solar panel cars. So he can truly play a role in the relief of angry and frustrated Pakistanis.

He’s pretty sure this idea will be succeeded without any doubt. We really feel proud of people like Aslam Azad who are doing everything in their power and imagination for the benefit of people of Pakistan.

    Half a million dollars is a lot of money…I am tempted to call that bluff.

    i agree.. $500000 for that.. either hes attempting to get a shit load of money from the government because everyone is an idiot.. or he did his math wrong..

    he shouldve gone for a more aerodynamic look.. and tried to extend the roof as much as possible to get the max surface area.. but i guess its only the prototype… but half a million?? seriously?? more like Half a million rupees!

    States support or TT's support? 😛 in se puchein inho ne energy band diagram bnai hai? 😛

  6. Saad Khan says

    Zain Khalid Hahahaha: btw TTs support would be important factor….

    i never bothered to watch the video i mean any one can join parts to get the thing but you really need to take your head out of your ass to invent something

  8. Ammar Khan says

    It's NOT an invention! It's history… and frankly speaking, it's just a toy. At least don't say you are proud of that silly thing! it gets really embarrassing!

    Excellent idea by Mr. Azad Aslam to build a solar powered car however he needs to consider 2 points. 1. The solar panel should be installed on the rooftop instead of fixing them on the top of engine as they will be damaged if someone will hit the car from front or from the side. 2 A good quality deep cycle gel battery with a minimum of 5 years warranty would be required

  12. Tauqir Ahmad says

    The main issue is not only a low quality solar panels having recycled solar cells which are being imported in Pakistan but also a good quality solar deep cycle gel batteries which are not being manufactured in Pakistan. The Pakistani batteries manufactures do not give a 5 years warranty

    Why should a government which has no leadership in science and technology (either current or past government, both having contributed equally to the current energy crisis we are in) have any authority to issue any license for production of this car or for any other R&D that this gentleman wants to carry on. Bravo Mr. Aslam! Good work. We can only dig out of the current crisis if each one of us undertakes or supports such projects. To hell with governments. Till date no energy policy exists, I cant be sure of the customs and taxes I have to pay for solar project components, AEDB is a mess and our dear leaders want to obtain all solutions from China. Keep up the good work, WE the people are with you. Develop a business plan, seek venture capital, go public, sell shares, seek the endorsement of the people and the greatest license of all, the common man's "market demand" for your item. The government and its 40 ministers, if you haven't noticed travel in Land Cruisers and Prados for which fuel is no problem, and live in mansions and offices for which electricity is neither a problem nor has to be paid for (as it is now being increasingly evident)!

    A Joke. This size Solar array can give only 150 watts in optimal condition. What such meager energy can do in the car.
