invictus 1.0.PNG

Invictus 1.0 was designed and manufactured for a national-level event named National Solar Vehicle Challenge (NSVC). It outperformed all the other vehicles in acceleration and other events. Thanks to our innovations and design we were able to achieve various awards. Invictus 1.0 powertrain is being incorporated in the passenger vehicle. It's a completely new design that gives very good acceleration that all solar vehicles lack.
