Nagpur teenager builds eco-friendly electric car out of scrap pieces

nagpur teenager builds eco-friendly electric car
It’s good to know that how people are making effort to reuse old objects for reducing their environmental impact. Onkar Talmale, a 19-year-old boy from Nagpur, is in headlines for making an eco-friendly electric car that he has made completely out of scrap pieces. To build this electric car, named ‘Hirkani,’ he has used an old plastic drum, a couple of buckets, and a few pieces of scrap pipes and iron rods.
The old plastic drum is turned into the bonnet, plastic buckets are used as front seats with storage space, and scrapped iron rods and pipes are being used as chassis of the electric car. The seats also have space to store away things.
What makes his work even more commendable is the fact that he neither has an engineering background nor had any prior experience in automobiles. He has managed to create this green automobile out of sheer interest, using the pocket money of Rs 50,000 that he had saved over the years.
Talmale took about a month to develop this eco-friendly car, which measures 10-feet in length and weighs around 200kg. The car even features two headlamps up front, tail lamps at the rear and can be fully charged with two units of electricity. On a single charge, the battery-powered car can last for up to four hours on the road.
Currently studying at air rifle shooting course in Pune, Talmale recently drove this self-made car from his institute to Amaravati and back. His road trip of 150km did not require recharging the car in between.
It’s absolutely amazing to know that this teenager with no experience in automobiles has created a functional electric car that even reputed car makers take years to build. We think Talmale can give some serious inputs to create India’s futuristic green electric cars.

NAGPUR: What can one create using a broken plastic drum, a couple of buckets, and a few pieces of scrap iron rods and pipes, all of which were thrown out as garbage? In the case of 19-year-old Onkar Talmale, it is a car.
Studying at an air rifle shooting course in Pune, Talmale has no background in automobile engineering or any related field. He made the eco-friendly car out of sheer interest and diligence. Using the pocket money of Rs50,000 that he had saved over the years, Talmale made an electric car and even drove it to Amravati and back.
This is not the first time that he has made something out of waste. At 14, he had created a mobile charger using a bicycle.
Talmale is a resident of Dattawadi and studied at Dharampeth High School.His father runs a small stationary shop. "I have wanted a vehicle. For the last two years, I have been saving pocket money as I wanted to invest it in something that I would create on my own. Eventually I got the idea of developing this car," said Talmale.
He has named this car, which took him about a month to develop, 'Hirkani'. It can seat two persons. In the creation of his 'Hirkani', Talmale has used a 200 litre broken water drum lying waste at his home as the bonnet. Two old buckets have been used to make the seats.
The two seats, covered with lids, also double up as storage for a journey. The chassis has been made out of scrap iron rods and pipes.
"Its maximum speed limit is 50km/hour. It takes two units [2kWh] of electricity to charge it completely. It has enough battery backup to run for about four hours in one go," Talmale said. The car has two front and two rear lights, and is 10 foot long. It weighs around 200kg.
About two months back Talmale made a trip to Amravati and back. "We covered the 150km distance in about 4 hours and 20 minutes. We took a break of 20 minutes during the drive. The journey was completed as we had planned, the car ride was smooth, and it required no charging in between," he added proudly.
