The environment-friendly car is expected to take Bangladesh forward in the automobile sector

The students of Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (Kuet) have built a model Formula One racing car with jute fibre technology.

The car, named “Kiloflight Alpha” has been considered a milestone in the automobile sector of Bangladesh.

The car is made out of environment-friendly jute fibre composite and took part in the Formula Student UK online event.

Calling itself “Kiloflight,” the Kuet team worked on the car for three years before showcasing it at the event. The team was the sole Bangladeshi team among 64 countries that took part in the event.

The second-year student of Kuet Mechanical Engineering Department, Amlan Biswas, said that the car was modelled targeting the Formula Student UK event.

“The car has a modern engine, gear, brake and meter and is safe for the driver. It can go at 162 km/h,” he said.

As Bangladesh was in the red zone during the Covid-19 pandemic, they participated online and secured 33rd place.

Mechanical Engineering Department Chairman Prof Dr Md Saidul Islam said that the car has been made out of environment-friendly material.

He has expressed the hope that although the team participated online this time, they will take part in the event physically in England next year.

Kiloflight leader Erfan Islam said that the project was funded by the team that worked on it and some former Kuet students.

Mechanical Engineering Department Prof Dr Muhammad Masud, who was the team’s academic adviser, said that a team of 28 completed the work after receiving special training.
