The project of the design and manufacture of the solar car Persian Gazelle began in the winter of 2005 in I.R.Iran. A team was formed by Dr. K. Abrinia using a group of students in the School of Mechanical Engineering, College of Engineering at the University of Tehran. This project was the first of its kind ever which was going to be done in Iran or anywhere in the Middle East. At the beginning the review of the works carried out in this field around the world was done. In this process many solar car teams and individuals from the universities all over the world came into contact with us which were very helpful. Since it was the first project of its kind which was going to be done in Iran, and there were no previous experience and knowledge about it and it was completely unknown to people in Iran, no one was prepared to sponsor it at the beginning.Nevertheless the Persian Gazelle team started their work and designed the solar car with all its details in 3 months time.
