This video comes from Creative Etc. on YouTube. The YouTuber keeps creating interesting projects that a lot of people love. In fact, this particular video also has over 4.7 million views. The designer of this solar car showcases the entire process of building this EV from scratch. First of all, he constructs the external frame for the EV. He uses rugged rods and welds them together to form a strong structure. Thereafter, he makes panels for seating and covers this frame to give it the shape of a car, to some extent. He even installs a window at the front.
Apart from that, there is a proper suspension setup in place. It even gets a 3-wheeler setup with 2 wheels at the front and 1 wheel at the rear. The YouTuber ensures that the EV has front headlamps and a taillamp to keep others cognisant of its movements. As a matter of fact, there are ORVMs to ensure proper visibility while changing lanes and a roof created by a sheet of solar panels. There is a battery and other related components installed in a dedicated place on the floor of the car. All in all, this creation is quite impressive and practical.
