Garuda, the car that runs 180 km per litre!

August 6, 2008

There is also a lot of 'green' value attached to the car, the developers say. "The logic here is simple: lesser the fuel consumption, lesser the emission. We had kept this thought in mind as we live in a world which is becoming increasingly aware of environmental issues," says Nishant.

For these boys, the road does not end here. They have big plans for the future. Nishant and Bharat say that they intend to build on the existing platform and optimize the design apart from achieving a mileage of over 500 kmpl.

They also want to be the first Indian team to compete in the SAE Supermileage and UK Shell Marathon competitions.

The students said that Tantra Infosolutions, CD Adapco, Chameleon Motors, Bimal Auto Agency, Innoversant Solutions also helped them in various ways during the development of the car.
