The AMZ Formula Student Team did it again: they accomplished a new the world record today: accelerating with an electrical vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h in only 1.513 seconds!
I’m very proud what our students can accomplish: they broke today the previous world record for acceleration in an electrical car:
From 0 to 100 km/h (62.1371 miles/h) in 1.785 seconds 🙂
It only took 30 meters runway to reach 100 km/h :-).
Happy Accelerating 🙂
Here is another featured student project of this semester: Formula Student Electric (FSE). After the outstanding racing season with “Julier” in 2013, the students have designed and built a new and improved Formula Student Electric car “grimsel”, named after the Grimsel Mountain Pass.
While weather is bad and Switzerland suffers from record high rain water levels, the Formula Student “julier” team was testing their race car this week-end after the rollout. This time to test the 4WD with more torque. Plus water-resistance ;-). So here are impressions, pictures and a video from this week-end:
Last Thursday the new Formula Student race car named ‘julier’ had its rollout to the public at Sauber Motorsports in Hinwil, Switzerland. Again a fully electrical racing car, but this time with 4-wheel drive, improved aero-pack and electronics, and able to get from 0 to 100 km/h in 2.6 seconds!
