A group of students from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, have built an all-electric single-seater race car that has been confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest accelerating electric car in the world.
Accordingly, the electric car named E0711-11 EVO of the GreenTeam group is noted to be able to accelerate from 0-100km / h in 1,461 seconds. This result broke the previous record held by Swiss team AMZ Racing with a time of 1,513 seconds. Meanwhile, the fastest 0-100km/h acceleration time of a petrol car belongs to the Porsche 911 Turbo S (992) with a record of 2.5 seconds.
High-speed running on a straight road requires both speed, traction as well as the car’s super weight. And the electric racing car built by students at the University of Stuttgart has it all. The electric car built by German students weighs only 145kg, is made almost entirely of carbon fiber, uses all-wheel drive and has a capacity of 241 horsepower (180kW).
This car has an optimal power / weight ratio than all supercars. Specifically, the E0711-11 EVO has a ratio of 1.6kg/kW, comparable to the 1kg/kW F1 racing car, but lower than the Bugatti Veyron Supersport (2.08kg/kW) and Porsche 918 Spyder (2.50kg/kW) kW).
And to achieve the fastest speed, all 4 wheels need to be warmed up before starting.
The video shows that the E0711-11 EVO can start each axis separately. So first we see the front wheel spin to generate heat before the rear wheel moves. This mechanism makes many people wonder if each wheel axle can rotate in a different direction when “burning the tire” to save time and give better images.
However, the video is only confirmation that the E0711-11 EVO has completed the acceleration record from 0 to 100km / h in 1,461 seconds, but does not show the entire acceleration process.
New record for fastest accelerating electric car.
