Electric Car Sets New World Record with Vincotech's Help
2016-July - Vincotech was on board when the students of ETH Zurich's AMZ racing team set out to break the world record for an electric vehicle's ability to accelerate. With the benefit of Vincotech's power modules and technical support, the “Grimsel” racer put in the fastest 0-to-100 km/h acceleration time ever recorded for an electric vehicle.
Guinness acknowledges the new record
Flying across the tarmac of the Dübendorf military airfield, the car of the Formula student team of the Academic Motorsports Association Zurich hit the 100-km mark before it had covered 30 meters. The e-racer took just 1.513 seconds to reach that speed, shaving a couple of tenths off the time of the previous record of 1.779 seconds held by a University of Stuttgart car.
Vincotech is proud to support these enthusiastic students and their project, and we're delighted with their record-setting achievement, which is now in the Guinness Book of World Records. To learn more, visit http://bit.ly/29oTUoZ.
