Development of PRODA Electric Vehicle

First Stage R & D Scope of Present Work

The Electric Vehicle conversion done in PRODA used a small Toyota Starlet car. The converted vehicle can carry the full passenger load of four persons and cover up to (80) kilometers per hour. It has a range of about one hundred (100) kilometers for battery recharge. It is powered by a seventy-two (72) volts d.c. battery (6 nos, 12 volts batteries) capable of five thousand (5,000) revolution per minute. This is the first attempt in the Institute in converting petrol fired engines to Electrical power driven. It is hoped that further R & D will result to more efficient and economic version of the Electric Car.

CAPACITY

Pottery/Ceramic Wares

PRODA now possesses considerable proficiency in pottery production technology. Since 1972, the Institute has operated a self-contained limited production outfit for commercial manufacturing of ceramic table and decorative wares, building bricks and blocks, industrial refractory bricks etc. These have been in great demand and sold nationwide. A number of housing estates in Enugu/Anambra States and PRODA itself were built with PRODA Bricks/blocks.

Through this experience, PRODA has innovated on a number of related production equipment such that the Institute can now package cottage pottery plants for entrepreneurs.
