Since the fuel prices not only in India but throughout the world is increasing day by day thus there is a tremendous need to search for an alternative to conserve these natural resources. Thus a solar bicycle is an electric vehicle that provides that alternative by harnessing solar energy to charge the battery and thus provide required voltage to run the motor. Since India is blessed with nine months of sunny climate thus concept of solar bicycle is very friendly in India. Hybrid bicycle combines the use of solar energy as well as the dynamo that runs through pedal to charge the battery to run the bicycle. Thus solar hybrid bicycle can become a very vital alternative to the fueled automobile thus its manufacturing is essential.
