Solar Rickshaw Invented by Pakistani Motor Mechanic

Islamabad News Reporter - On Thursday Senate was informed that “Solar Auto Rickshaw” technology has successfully been developed to help overcome shortage of energy and rising costs of fuel.


The Minister for Science and Technology told the House in a written reply during question hour that M/s United Services International Group (USIG) of Lahore and Pakistan Institute of Technology for Minerals and Advance Engineering Materials Lahore had developed the technology through collaborative research.

He said the rickshaw was now ready for operations and would use solar energy instead of petrol or Compressed Natural Gas (CNG). He further said the cost of one solar auto rickshaw was about Rs 2, 30,000 which could be easily covered in one year, adding that its normal speed was 50 to 70 kilometers per hour.

The solar rickshaw operated on five solar panels along with five batteries and was driven by one Direct Current (DC) Motor. – Pakistantoday
