EV acceleration world record – 62 mph (100 km/h) in 1.779 seconds

This tiny electric vehicle, built by GreenTeam Uni Stuttgart e.V. from the University of Stuttgart, set a new Guinness World Record for acceleration of an EV when it reached 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 1.779 seconds. From Electric Autosport:

The 100kW all-wheel drive vehicle designed to race in the Formula Student competitions, is powered by four motors and a 6.62kWh battery package. With a vehicle’s weight of 160 kg, the power to weight ratio is 1,6 kg/kW. That is a stunning performance in comparison with other vehicles like Formula 1 (1,0 kg/kW), Bugatti Veyron Supersport (2,08 kg/kW) and a Porsche 918 Spyder (2,50 kg/kW).
