New Delhi: Engineering edutech startup Skill-Lync built an in-house electric vehicle prototype to help its students gain insights into the automotive industry’s future.

The inhouse built electric vehicle is in line with the startup’s vision to provide deep expertise to its students. A team of 6 in-house experts in collaboration with professionals from leading OEMs in the country built this electric vehicle.

The prototype electric vehicle took over 9 months to completely build at a Rs 5 lakh cost. It has a top speed of 45 kmph and offers a 40 km range. It has a seating capacity of 5 people and reaches an acceleration from zero to top speed in 6 seconds.

The built electric vehicle will impart practical knowledge to students about what goes behind building an electric vehicle.

Skill-Lync is also offering its students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in the actual EV building process and building EV prototypes on their own. The startup has plans to launch a series of masterclass videos that will visually present the EV building process.

Skill-Lync aims to continue building more such EV prototypes that will be autonomous on the back of cutting-edge instrumentations and sensors. Through this practical interface, the startup wants to augment its EV and automotive programs and expand the knowledge offered through its coursework.

“In addition to our coursework that provides a deep understanding of the Hybrid Electric Vehicle Design and Analysis, we are also offering a first-hand experience of building an EV from scratch, thus providing a holistic view of the future of the automotive industry,” said SuryaNarayanan PaneerSelvam, Co-Founder of Skill-Lync.

“We believe that our EV programs combined with the hands-on experience of practically observing how EVs are built will go a long way in bridging the skill gap that exists in disruptive automotive engineering today,” said Sarangarajan V Iyengar, Co-Founder of Skill-Lync.
