Kenyan Student Develops Solar-Powered Car

30-year-old Samuel Karumbo, who studies at Kitale polytechnic, Trans Nzoia County developed the solar-powered two-seat four-wheeler, which he says can cover about 50 km when fully charged. Karumbo said that while growing up, he badly dreamed of owning a car, but a cost effective one.

“I admired owning a car and since I did not have enough money to buy one, I just sat down and remembered that I am an innovator. That is when I thought of coming up with a unique car, a solar-powered car that does not require any fuel,” he told a local media at small garage in the heart of Langas Estate, Eldoret Town.
