This electric car project has been started with an old Ambassador was bought and its components like engine was removed and changed.

They equipped lead-acid batteries in the empty spaces inside the bonnet and boot. There are 22 batteries altogether. The 20kW battery pack provides a 53 bhp of power which churns the torque of 275 Nm at 1500 rpm. This torque is said to be higher than the 1.4 litre petrol Jeep Compass which produces 250 NM of torque at 1750-2500 rpm. The batteries take 8 hours to charge fully. 

If you get high torque then it helps the car to pick up the speed fast. It has a top speed of 120 km per hour.

The team has also run the Amby on the solar panels and there were no issues but it was just looking little bad in terms of appearances.
