SERVe (Solar Electric Road Vehicle) is a two seat, four wheeler solar electric passenger car. The roof of the car is comprised of a 6 metre square curved solar panel.The solar car is capable of a top speed of 45 kmph and has a range of about 80 km.
SERVe is India’s first passenger solar electric vehicle which uses clean and free fuel with zero emissions and zero noise pollution. It is built with AISI 4130 Chromoly steel chassis which gives it high strength to weight ratio and GFRP body making it lightweight. It has an aerodynamic and aesthetic design obtained from the cut section of a tear drop- the most aerodynamic shape. The theoretical coefficient of drag is 0.28.
Focus is laid on improved driver ergonomics. Further, the car is energy positive.
