The BuzzAcceleration record smashed by German EV student race team

Acceleration record smashed by German EV student race team


Your instinctive reaction to this dinky little project car from the University of Stuttgart’s ‘GreenTeam’ may be to let out a little chuckle or even an ‘aww’ noise, but that smile will soon be wiped off your face when you see just what this miniature, puppy dog-resembling marvel is capable of…


Because the team and the car have just smashed the Guinness World Record for the fastest accelerating car to travel from 0-100km/h, electric or not, with a neck-snapping time of just 1.779 seconds!

Beating previous record holder AMZ Racing by just 0.006 seconds, the car uses four electric motors and a 6.62kWh battery to kick out around 134bhp. Not anything to write home about, but the car’s party trick is its weight – just 160kg, which when combined with the instantaneous torque from an electric powerplant results in some serious G-forces.

Still think it’s a cute little car…?!
