TEHRAN, Jan. 07 (Press Shia Agency) – Iranian researchers have manufactured for the first time electric go-karts equipped with a solar panel for recharge.

Shamsoddin Sarani, the project manager, told Mehr News correspondent that his team at Islamic Azad University of Sisitan and Baluchistan have managed to domestically manufacture electric go-karts that come with a solar panel for recharging.

According to him, the electric go-kart has a DC motor and can be recharged by urban electricity as well as solar panels, therefore it is considered as a hybrid.

The go-kart can hold three hours of electricity while moving and 168 hours while in standby.   

Sarani pointed out that the drive system or the rmp control is 1-100 km/h, adding “the solar panel used in the go-kart is capable of increasing the volume of electricty by 10-15%.”

The advantages of the electric go-kart include low maintenance, better acceleration, pollution-free and safer in an accident.
