Adding to the recent displays of technical finesse by students of the city, Siz Mechanical Engineering students of the College of Technology and Engineering (CTAE) have designed and developed an All Wheel Drive (AWD) Hybrid Non-Geared Scooter as a submission towards their final year college project.
The fourth year students had been working on this hybrid scooter for the last 3 months under the guidance of M.A. Saloda, Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering Department, CTAE. The students have initiated their modifications on an existing non-geared scooter in the market.
P.eLTRONA, the new hybrid scooter will run on both petrol and electricity. The scooter’s engine, when operating under the speed of 40 km per hour, will run on electricity and above this speed it will shift to Petrol.
The scooter also has an interesting feature – when running on rockier terrains it will run on dual mode. The back wheel will run on the petrol engine and the front wheel will run on the electric engine.
The team of students also claims this scooter to be very eco-friendly, primarily because of the hybrid nature and also in the Bottle Test of the scooter it proved to have a 16.4 % more fuel efficiency than its original version. The smoke emission from the exhaust also reduced due the use of electric mode.
The team of students includes Hitesh Paneri, Gaurav Nagori, Sumer Singh Rajawat, Shaleen Sharma, Vibhor Gupta and Rajpal Singh Rathore.
During the demo of the scooter given by this team, Abdul Aziz, a city resident showed his interest in buying the scooter from them.
