Vehicles are getting transformed from a single source of energy to dual or multiple sources of energy due to ever-increasing fuel problems and environment related issues. Although hybrid vehicles provide environmental friendly option, however, they require sophisticated mechanical, electrical and electronic parts and systems. As a result, hybrid cars are more expensive than fossil fuel based conventional cars. One of the cost effective options is to convert used fossil fuel based conventional cars into hybrid or electric cars. This conversion requires installation of electric motor and complex electronic control system for smooth and safe operation. This paper present necessary details about the conversion of a conventional fossil fuel based car into solar-electric hybrid (SOLECT) car.
