New world record for distance run without recharging the battery, set the Japanese electric trolley Mira EV, having passed 1003.184 kilometers. Made electropenalties Mira EV electric vehicle enthusiasts club (JEVC), based on the series 'kei-car' Daihatsu Mira. He improved the results shown to them, almost 500 kilometers. That was in November last year, a record was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records. The interesting thing is that technically, the electric filling has not changed since last year's record. On Electric buses have been installed with low rolling resistance. Ron Beit is full of insight into the issues. Facilitated by weight, by replacing the rear windows on the plexiglass, removing the rear seats and some equipment.
Equipped with electric, 14-kilowatt 8320 motor and lithium-ion batteries of cylindrical firm Sanyo, battery supplier for the project Mira EV. In 'real life' battery used in laptop computers. The first speed record for electric vehicles recorded in 1899, and then dispersed to electric trolley 106 kilometers per hour, while the latter belongs to the American car White Lightning, in 1999, he traveled at a speed of 394 kilometers per hour. Incidentally, the English Electric swing at world speed record electric car designers 'ABB e = motion', aimed to break the world record, surpassing the speed barrier of 300 miles per hour. Check-in will take place in America, Nevada.
Record will be recorded by representatives of International Automobile Association (FIA). Will be made two check-in and electric needs to show speed in the interval of 1 km, more than 394 km / h. The last land speed record for electric vehicles was established in 1999 American car White Lightning. It is equal to 245 miles per hour (394 km / h). In the preliminary competitions 'ABB e = motion' has shown that he can develop a speed of 237 km / h, exceeding the existing record for electric vehicles in the UK. 10-meter electric car 'ABB e = motion 'is designed by two engineers from the UK by Mark Newby and Collin Fallouzom. Equipped with two 37-kilowatt motors, and 4 units with 52 batteries, rechargeable batteries. Mark Newby said: "For the first trial race 'ABB e = motion' revealed spectacular acceleration during testing in the UK, it is easy to overclock to 146 miles / hour (237 km / h) in just 1,000 yards (914 meters). We believe that will exceed existing world record. " Trying to set the record already made in Tunisia, but was postponed due to insufficient safe surface. Engineers expect that in Nevada this will not happen.
