Schluckspecht E makes record, goes 1013.76 miles on a single charge
The “Schluckspecht E” electric vehicle last year has broken previous record of 1,003 km (623 miles) on a single charge set by the Japan Electric Vehicle Club. The vehicle came from a team at the University of Applied Sciences in Offenberg, Germany. What is mentionable here is that the vehicle has used existing battery technology and had a battery capacity of just 23kWh as compared to previous record maker who had battery capacity of 50kWh.
The team attributes the efficiency to better aerodynamics and reduced weight. The 320 kg vehicle took 36 hours and 12 minutes to complete the journey with an average speed of 28mph.
