In today’s world, the most threatening situation we are going towards is global warming. The main reason behind this threat is fuel consumption from which harmful chemicals are releasing into the air & causing a devastating effect on environment. To reduce it, alternative source of energy as a fuel source is the key where solar energy plays a vital role. The objective of this paper is to develop the infrastructure of the existing solar car so that it can cover more distance per hour at the same battery charge level by modifying the differential so that the overall efficiency in case of battery consumption, speed & longevity of the car can be up to its full potential. In this paper, it also illustrates the overall result of the reliability of the solar car & also gives a glimpse to its future development scope. This paper also focuses on the side to side to comparison of the data that were previously collected & the recent data after the upgrades to screen the practicality of this project. This includes the data logging, solar panel efficiency, the overall speed of the solar car & the distance covered in one full charge in daily condition.
