The DUT12 – The Fastest EV In The World Powered by Netherlands Students

DUT12 – The fastest EV in the world. I bet you think “yes, it’s must be something sluggish like neighbor’s Prius”. Try again. This little bulldog doing 0 to 100 km per hour in 2.15 seconds. Yes, my friend, no need to try that in you fuel-guzzling V8 supercar.

Students achieved more than expected, as team manager Tim de Moree admitted: “We thought that under these conditions we’d be happy with 2.30, but we really didn’t expect 2.15”.  Team from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands built this 2.3 hp per pound little monster from lightweight carbon-fiber-reinforced-plastic monocoque achieving only 319 pounds. And after fitting  33-hp electric motors on wheels with4.2-kW lithium-ion battery and total output of 135 horsepower – magic was there. Lightweight female driver from their team took them to victory – beating the world EV record for 0 – 100 kmh. Congratulation.  Top marks! Can’t wait to see the next electric miracle from Netherlands.
