This fully electric vehicle may look tiny (even its burnouts are so cute), but it's just become one of the fastest accelerating cars on the planet, beating the likes of the Bugatti Veyron and Porsche 918 to post a new world record for EVs.
This tiny car accelerates quicker than a Bugatti Veyron SuperSport
The car which was built by a team of students from the University of Stuttgart, managed to hit 62 mph (100 kmph) in an mind numbing 1.779 seconds.
According to The Verge, the car which was built by a team of students from the University of Stuttgart, managed to hit 62 mph (100 kmph) in an mind numbing 1.779 seconds.
In the report, The Verge points out that this beats the previous record holder — Swiss team AMZ Racing — by just 0.006 seconds.
The car weighs 160kg and is powered by four electric motors and a 6.62kWh battery to generate 134 horsepower, according to a report from Electric Autosport.
This gives it a power-to-weight ratio of 1.6 kg/kW which is not as good as a Formula One car (1.0 kg/kW) but easily beats a Bugatti Veyron Supersport (2.08 kg/kW).
