In 1.461 seconds from 0 to 100: that is the new world record time for the fastest accelerating electric vehicle. Twenty students from the University of Stuttgart broke the record on 23 September with their self-designed electric racing car.
Not only did the Germans invent the car, but now they’ve gone and broken the speed record for an electric vehicle. The deed was done on a racetrack on the Bosch premises in Renningen, Germany. Guinness World Records confirmed the new world record on 6 October.
Professor Wolfram Ressel, Rector of the University of Stuttgart, was full of praise for his students: “The University of Stuttgart is proud that the GreenTeam has succeeded in setting a new record for the acceleration of e-vehicles. I’m really excited about what our students have accomplished. Studying at university not only means acquiring theoretical knowledge but also being able to apply it in practice. The GreenTeam’s commitment is an excellent example of how knowledge transfer can succeed.”
