Abstract: The present paper deals with the innovative energy efficient automobile design is mainly focused on safety, reliability and cost effectiveness. The smart innovative design is done on safety basis. Main features of the smart vehicle design are long battery back-up and energy efficient use of drives. A back-up supply from the source is available when the vehicle is out of charge. The back-up source is combination or coupling of solar power, wind energy, and shaft coupled dynamo. The design of the motor vehicle(kart) is in accordance with the specifications laid down by the rule book given in this paper. The motor runs with a power output of 750W and 36V. The sources employed are a combination of three 12V 40Ah batteries in series. There is one more back-up battery on board, which is charged by the 2 dynamos and 1 solar panel dynamically. Efforts have been put to validate our design by theoretical calculations, simulations and known facts.
