 Fastest Electric Race Car: The Formulec EF01 sets world record (HD Video)

 PARIS, France -- Thanks to the power of its traction system (220kw, which equates to 300bhp), the Formulec EF01 reaches 0-100 km/h in just three seconds and is targeting a maximum speed of 250km/h- setting the new world record

  The Guinness world record for the largest parade of electric vehicles consisted of 218 vehicles and was organised by the Bay Harbor Foundation (USA) at the Bay Harbor Vintage Car and Boat Festival in Bay Harbor, Michigan, USA.

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the fastest car powered by dry cell batteries: the Oxyride Racer, which achieved an average speed of 105.95 km/h (65.83 mph).

  The EF01 therefore shows that speed and efficiency can coincide with a respect of the environment and sustainable development.

  Few more details about the car:
  • Maximum speed – 260km/h
  • Race autonomy (time on track from one charge) – 20-25 minutes depending on the track length and design
  • Gearbox: 2 speeds
  • Time in qualifying lap – close to a Formula 3 car
  • Time of recharge – between 1 and 1 ½ hours

  Recently, tests have been made for the incorporation of an energy recovery system which will be fitted to all the cars entering the 2012 championship. fastest electric race car Formulec EF01
