Objectives: The main objective of this study is to design and develop a Solar Assisted Bicycle (SAB) in order to reduce pollution in India. Methods/Statistical analysis: The elicitation design and methodology to move or run the bicycle in solar energy with the help of hub motor which is mounted on the front wheel. Provision is made in the design to charge the battery from electrical (solar) source. Findings: Thus the rapid growth in population and urban mobilization in India has result an increase in the usage of motor vehicles. The environmental decay is due to vehicles combustion of fuels. In urban areas it is increasing continuously day by day. Even though India has abundant resource in solar energy, still the country is spending more of artificial resource (crude oil) than natural resource (Solar). To solving this problem, a design is made to develop an eco-friendly vehicle. The main finding of the proposed bicycle is to reduce the 60% of overall vehicle emission in India. Application/Improvements: with the rising fuel prices and pollution, this bicycle seems to be cheapest, healthiest, eco-friendly and it is affordable to all kinds of people in the society.
