Electricity-Powered VehicleAn electricity-operated four-passenger vehicle travelling for a distance of 120 km without re-charging Watch the project’s video: Watch
To reduce the negative impact of traditional means of transport vehicles powered by gasoline and diesel fuel and which include:
1. Air pollution
3. Traffic congestion
4. The high cost of transportation
The design and manufacture of a vehicle powered by electric power may be the best solution to overcome the above-mentioned impacts, the project’ aim, which represents a direct application of the principle of technology  localization in order to produce a local product using national technology and manufacturing to design an electric vehicle for everyday use within the city, where consists of a small convenient structure to reduce the traffic congestion, which  is equipped with four seats, along with a 3000 watts engine, in addition to  a system of energy conservation  48-volt DC voltage and energy of 1600 amp/hr which qualifies it to travel at 60 km / h maximum within the city and to travel for a distance of 120 km without need to recharge. By producing this vehicle with a final cost which does not exceed 10,000 EGP, it will provide an ideal solution for a large segment of the Egyptian community by providing a local product for family use for transportation within the city, which could be suitable for university students, public-sector workers and employees with low-income. It was planned to implement the project in three phases:
|Phase I:  Completed in 01/01/2008|
- Design and implementation of the passengers’ seating structure.
- Design and implementation of the suspension system.
- Design and Execution of electric propulsion system.
- Testing the efficiency of front and rear movement.

|Phase II: Completed in 07/22/2008|
- Modification of the design of the passengers’ seating structure to hold four passengers instead of two.
- Design and implementation of variable mechanical propulsion system using four-speed gearbox of “Easy Tronic “system.
- Design and implementation of computerized control and monitoring system which include the following:
Front and rear cameras operating during vehicle parking.
Record the entire trip using the front and rear cameras to act as a black-box in case of accidents.
A navigation system GPS using satellite maps.
Demonstrating operating data such as speed, battery charge amount, travelled distance until the end of vehicle’s charge.
TV and CD, MP3, DVD player in addition to games.
Voice command system.

|Phase III:  Under construction|
- Design and implementation of the doors with bilateral axes.
- Design and implementation of the external structure.
- Design and implementation of the lighting system.
