TECHNOCRAT INSTITUTE of Technology (TIT) Final Year (Mechanical) students have manufactured an economic two-seater car under their project work.

The car costing around Rs 17,000 has mostly old car parts and other devices fitted in it. Its maximum speed is 40 km  per hour and consumption average is 32 km per litre.

The two-seater car has hydraulic break and power steering. Under the guidance of mechanical department head Professor S Dhodke, Final Year students, including Surendra Mewada, Sudha Chandani, Vaibhav Singh, Niket Dave and Ankit Agrawal manufactured the car in the TIT laboratory.

With adequate improvement, the car could be commercially viable at a cost of Rs 50,000 to Rs 60,000 per car. Two students Surendra Mewada and Ankit Agrawal ran the car for nearly 130 km for demonstration.

On the occasion, TIT director Dr MP Pandey, students, faculties of the institute and journalists were present.
