The students from the vehicular research department at the University of Qazvin designed and developed the vehicle named ‘Havin’ which means ‘shining sun’.
Havin is five meters long and two meters wide and is capable of reaching speeds of over 130 kilometers (80 miles) per hour.
The students unveiled the fiber glass vehicle at the Tehran Permanent International Fairground on Thursday.
The vehicle weighs 160 kilograms (352 lb.) and is fitted with six square meters of silicon solar cells.
The environmentally-friendly project comes in line with Iran’s greater policy to reduce energy consumption across all sectors.
