Students from ETH Zurich and Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts have set a new world record for electric cars: The Formula Student racer of the Swiss group accelerated from a standstill to a speed of 100 km/h in less than one second. This was reported by the SRF.

The world record attempt by the Academic Motorsport Club Zurich (AMZ) took place at the Dübendorf airfield, just under ten kilometres east of Zurich. With an output of 235 kW (315 bhp), the car had significantly more power than is usual in Formula Student. For weight reasons, the smaller and lighter female students sat at the wheel for the acceleration distance, which was only about 14 metres short. Now the world record holders can look forward to an entry in the Guinness Book of Records.
