    Indigenous carbon negative solar car innovation goes to Australia

    A Chennai-built solar car is headed to Australia

    This team of 15 inventors from Chennai has built a car that runs on solar power. And now they are building another, for a global challenge in Australia.

    • The team plans to design a carbon negative solar car for the World Solar Challenge, where the chassis is made of a mixture of homogenised bamboo and other materials.
    • The four day route of the challenge is one of the ultimate tests of a vehicles hardiness, user-friendliness and feasibility.
    • Pavan Kapnadak, one of the team members, says that through different innovations in the car, they want to mitigate the electric vehicle from running on electricity sourced from fossil fuels.
