A group of students from the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Engineering and Technology (UET) Lahore successfully transformed an outdated motorcycle (100cc) into an electric vehicle as part of their final year project.
Dr. Usman supervised the work of the team, which included Ammad, Qaiser, and Bilal. An electric motor, a battery system, and a controller were used to replace the engine.
The unique invention allows the cyclist to reach a top speed of 65 kilometers per hour. Furthermore, an appealing range of distance, i.e., 80-90km, is now feasible with just a single charge, which takes about three hours in standard conditions.
The UET Lahore-developed equipment meets modern requirements and provides an environmentally beneficial alternative to riding a scooter or motorcycle by lowering carbon emissions.
When compared to a gas motorcycle, the electric motorcycle offers a cheaper cost per kilometer.
