Students at Chitkara Institute of Engineering and Technology, India have designed and built an eco-friendly car concept. The team called “Steath 2” unveiled the vehicle Stealth in Chandigarh yesterday. The fuel-efficient car will be seen giving a tough competition to 90 teams from 12 countries participating in the Shell Eco Marathon Asia to be held in Kuala Lumpur from July 8 to July 10, 2010. The team has qualified to participate in the competition that is based on sustainable mobility and design.
