Three Hebron students introduced eco-friendly
motor technology over the weekend, in the form an electric car.
The three, who attend the Palestine Polytechnic University in the West Bank
city, said that the project was in the works for three months, and with virtually no funds.
The car can be charges by using a regular household electrical outlet, but when in use, it feeds off solar panels.
The one-seat car has a modest engine of only 2HP and can come up to 30km/h – which the students say should be more than enough to drive in normal urban conditions.
The car is fitted with 12 batteries that are meant to last for five hours.
According to West Bank media, the university hopes that the successful project will attract investors that will facilitate the car's mass production.
