Road transport has been dominated by petrol and diesel engines historically. Due to the environmental impacts and limited resources, both alternatives are unsustainable. The renewable energy directive, particularly identified as technology innovation, energy efficiency and renewable energy sources in the transport sector and it is considered as one of the most effective tools in reaching the targets in terms of sustainability and security of the supply. In this context, it is obvious that reaching the challenges depend on the rollout of Electric Vehicles (EV) as a sustainable transport and higher penetration of renewable energy sources. Here, a commercially marketable and simply designed electrical solar vehicle can replace fuel vehicles, controlling pollution and promoting wellness of the environment. It also creates awareness about the solar panel’s future possibility and feasibility. Each part of the vehicle is designed and analyzed. This paper covers broad view on design and fabrication of a commercial renewable energy solar vehicle considering all the parameters within the limitations.
