Students of Ghana’s Premier engineering university, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) located in the Ashanti region, have build a vehicle that is powered by the sun.

The first version of the vehicle is reported to have been made public recently at a graduation ceremony of the university. The invention of the 4×4 vehicle was in partnership with the Technical University of Munich, the state-owned Daily Graphic reported.
It was developed by the Departments of Mechanical Engineering and Physics, and is seen as a breakthrough for the West African nation as it explores ways to build a more robust automobile industry.

The pickup-styled vehicle as displayed at the event seats two persons at a time. The first drive was taken by the chancellor of the university and powerful Ashanti king, Otumfuor Osei Tutu II and one of the guests who had graced the graduation ceremony.

The monarch drove it round a small field to much admiration of graduating students and other people who had gathered for the event. 

KNUST’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Kwasi Obiri-Danso, however disclosed that the car was still being tested with the aim of fine tuning it. He added that the invention represented their response to living up to the core mandate of spearheading development of innovative technologies.

The latest invention was named after the country’s first president Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
