Bilal Ahmed, a resident of Sanat Nagar, Srinagar, has made a solar powered car. It took 11 years for Bilal to build his dream car. Bilal said, “When I started the project and even after completing it, nobody gave me any financial support. Had I been supported, I would have probably been the Elon Musk of India. It cost Bilal Rs 15 lakh to build this car.
Back to the Future’s Car Inspired by DeLorean
Bilal Ahmed is a maths teacher by profession but has always been fond of cars. He enjoys studying cars and reading about how manufacturers make these machines. One car that inspired him the most is the car DeLorean seen in the movie Back to the Future. Seeing this car, he has designed his dream car. It has been made by modifying the Maruti 800.
The car in the picture above was the one shown in the movie Back to the Future. Below is the car made by Bilal Ahmed.
Panels that generate more energy in less light
Keeping in mind the rising prices of petrol and diesel, Bilal decided to make a solar powered car. For this, he got solar panels from a manufacturer in Chennai and selected such panels which can generate more power even in low light. He said that the sunlight in Kashmir is very less. So I used monocrystalline solar panels which are known to produce maximum energy.

Solar panels are installed in the door of the car
Solar panels are also installed in the doors of this car. These doors open upwards which makes the car stylish. Talking about his inspiration to make this car, Ahmed said, “Cars like Mercedes, Ferrari, BMW are just a dream for common people. Few people can afford it while for others driving and driving such cars remains a dream. I want to give luxury feel to such people also.

Ahmed is getting a lot of praise on social media for his innovation. Most sports cars have a seating capacity of only two people, they have designed their car to seat four people.
