SolarMobil Manipal is Manipal University’s official student solar vehicle team. It was established in 2011 with the motto “Imagineering the Future”.
SolarMobil is Manipal Institute of Technology’s solar car project. A team of undergraduate students use their technical skills to design and fabricate a solar powered electric vehicle from scratch.
The team is currently developing a four seat, four wheel solar powered electric vehicle conforming to a regular sedan configuration. The students begin by reviewing its previous projects, evaluating performance and manufacturing problems encountered during production. The team then compiles ideas and sets design goals.
