From a standstill to 100 kph in lower than a second – this feat was achieved by college students from ETH Zurich and the Lucerne College of Utilized Sciences and Arts with their self-built electrical racing automotive ‘mythen’.
The automotive accelerated from 0 to 100 kph in simply 0.956 seconds, beating the earlier Guinness World Acceleration Report for electrical automobiles of 1.461 seconds set by a workforce from the College of Stuttgart in September 2022. A distance of simply 12.3 metres was sufficient for the Swiss electrical automotive to attain this.
All elements of ‘mythen’, from the printed circuit boards (PCB) to the chassis and battery, had been developed by the scholars themselves and optimised for his or her operate. Because of the usage of light-weight carbon and aluminium honeycombs, the racing automotive weighs simply round 140 kilos. 4 self-developed wheel hub motors and a particular drive practice give the car a powerful output of 240 kilowatts (326 hp).
The AMZ workforce has already set the world acceleration document for electrical automobiles twice earlier than – as soon as in 2014 and once more in 2016. Within the following years, as talked about above, their document was damaged by a workforce from the College of Stuttgart. Now the world document is again in Switzerland and the ETH college students.
