Students from Stuttgart are chasing records with electric racing car

Stuttgart students want to break the world record

The world record should go back to Stuttgart: Students want to accelerate their electric racing car from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in one and a half seconds.

From 0 to 100 kilometers per hour in less than one and a half seconds. That’s the goal. With a self-built model, students from Stuttgart want to break the world record for accelerating an electric racing car.

During the test next Thursday at a fire station in Horb am Neckar in Baden-Württemberg, the self-proclaimed green team from the University of Vaihingen is also concerned with bringing the record for the fastest accelerating electric vehicle back to Germany.

Back and forth between Vaihingen and Zurich

This is actually nothing new for the people from Stuttgart, because the fight for the fastest time has been a back and forth for a decade, especially between the teams from Vaihingen and Zurich. The Stuttgart team has already held the record twice – and the Swiss have always been able to beat the performance.

“We are extremely motivated and have invested so much time and energy in the project that we are firmly convinced that we can break the world record,” explained Pavel Povolni, first chairman of the Greenteam Uni Stuttgart support association. The Greenteam was founded in 2009 and regularly takes part in the international design competition for students “Formula Student”.
