SOLEBLAZE

Soleblaze, our first car was designed and built by our founding team in 2015. The car was a result of challenging initiative taken by the team members to design, manufacture from scratch and assemble, all in a span of 10 months. The car was launched at the campus of IT giant Infosys, Bengaluru by the eminent Mr Narayan Murthy. We are also gratified to have had honourable Mr Chethan Maini and Mr Narayan Murthy on our advisory board.


ARKA

Our second car, Arka was built in 2017. Arka is distinct from Soleblaze for its advancements in aerodynamics and design. The car was the first-of-its kind in the country to have a carbon fibre monocoque body. We were able to attain a maximum speed of 84 kmph when the car ran on the testing tracks of Hidden Valley, Darwin, Australia. Arka was yet again the only entry from India at the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2017.
