Egyptian Students Design Award-Winning Hybrid Car

A group of engineering students in Egypt is dreaming of a greener future, by decreasing the country’s fuel consumption.

The Ain Shams University Racing Team, know simply as ASURT, has built a hybrid car, which runs on both electricity and gas. Hybrid cars can reduce the carbon footprint by decreasing the amount of fuel used to power a vehicle. ASURT engineers say their creation can run for 100 kilometres on three litres of gasoline, compared to non-hybrid cars that can manage only 15 kilometres on the same amount of fuel. The car won first place at the Global Hybrid-Electric Challenge held in Egypt’s Red Sea resort of Hurghada last March.


It was the first time the annual competition was hosted in the north African country.
