What is AiCars?
AiCars is a hydrogen-based vehicle manufacturing company. It’s AI-powered and made in India.
Electric vehicles take a lot of time to charge fully. At home, this time is around 7 hours and in the charging stations, this time is around 2 hours. But it can only cover 300 ~ 400 km.
The car Harshal created is powered by hydrogen fuel cells. The charging time is less, and it gives a range of 1000+ km.
One more perk of the hydrogen fuel cell is there’s no need to replace it after driving 15 Lakh km.
There’s an AI algorithm in the car that will help drive the car without the help of any driver (according to the founder). The AI is specially designed for Indian roads.
Who is the Founder of AiCars?
Harshal Mahadev Nakshane is the founder of Aicars. He’s from Yavatmal. Harshal is a big car enthusiast. He’s been working on car projects since 2015.
