Students of RV College of Engineering Bangalore, in order to represent their college in international events like SAE Supermileage and the Shell Eco-Marathons have built a super fuel efficient car that gives a mileage of 200Km/Litre.

Coined ‘Garuda RVCE supermileage car’, Key features of the car prototype include:

  • HONDA GK 100 97 cc, 2 Hp air cooled engine;

The fuel efficiency of the car was tested on the NICE corridor and demonstrated a mileage of 180Km/L under test conditions.
The team is also working on to improve the existing design and enhance the fuel efficiency to 500 Km/L!

This is not really a commercial version, but serious innovations like these are building India 2.0 and will create India’s own Bill Gates/Zuckerberg/Larry.

Don’t you think so?
