Unofficial range record for "Sunswift 7"
- The solar-powered electrical car "Sunswift 7" established by a team of pupils at the University of New South Wales in Australia has actually established an unofficial globe record-- pending alert of the dimension results-- for electrical cars to cover 1,000 kilometers on one battery fee. An access in the Guinness Book of Records has been obtained.
The Sunswift 7, which weighs only around 500 kgs, completed the distance in exactly eleven hours, 53 mins and 32 secs, despite a quit because of a trouble in the battery administration system. This represents an average rate of practically 85 kilometers per hour. According to the policies, the car might pick up an optimum of 15 mins throughout the record drive, and also the group needed exactly 14 minutes and also 52 seconds for the repair work.
Energy usage throughout the record drive was 3.8 kilowatt hrs per 100 kilometers, which has to do with 20 percent of that of an average electrical car.
