Three students from the Engineering University of Lahore invented a new kind of bicycle where the rider does not need to push the pedals to run the cycle as it is actually a solar-powered bicycle.

The cycle is converted into a motorcycle, it has an electric motor which is fueled by some batteries. The batteries are charged by the rays of the sunlight.

This one-of-its-kind vehicle can run at the speed of 20 KM per hour maximum. If fully charged, It can cover the area of about 50 to 55 kilometers.

The students said that it took them 3 and a half months to create this solar-powered bicycle, and it cost them Rs. 22,000

The batteries of this motorcycle can also be charged by electricity, and it does not pollute the environment.

Solar energy is slowly getting popular in Pakistan and it seems like in next few years if load shedding continues, people will cease the use of Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS) units in their houses and switch to solar panels.

Earlier, students at University of Management and Technology (UMT) made country’s first ever solar-powered airplane as their final year project

It is also to be recalled that Pakistani Parliament is the world’s first legislative house to use solar energy to meet its energy needs.

Solar energy equipment is very cheap and environment-friendly. In a country like Pakistan,  solar energy systems and solar-powered vehicles are perfect to use, because the climate of Pakistan is warmer than most of the other countries.
