Indian math teacher builds solar-powered electric car

(ORDO NEWS) — In 2009, Bilal Ahmed from Kashmir, India, stumbled upon a news article that predicted an exponential rise in gasoline prices in the future, which was the starting point for his ambitious project.

Ahmed, who works as a math teacher, built his dream solar-powered electric car in 11 years.

Ahmed converted his 1998 Nissan Micra to a solar-powered electric car and also added a gull-wing door structure to make it easier to place the solar panels.

The man is already being called the “Indian Elon Musk”, and he only smiles modestly in response.

The creation of an innovative electric vehicle cost Bilal nearly $19,000. Most of the materials the master had to buy on the Internet.

Ahmed also developed a remote-controlled device that works within a radius of 1.5 kilometers – with it you can control solar panels: change their position in order to receive more light.
