On Monday a student team of University of New South Wales in Australia break down the 26-years old world record of electric car with Solar Power Car called Sunswift Car at track in Victoria and become the fastest Electric Car which covers the longest distance of 500 km. The students are from UNSW’s Sunswift, Australia’s top solar car racing team. Earlier versions of the Sunswift car have been used to set a world record for the fastest solar powered road trip from Perth to Sydney, and a Guinness World Record for the fastest solar car. Their vehicle eVe is the fifth to be built and raced since the team was founded in 1996. The car has 60 kg battery and Soler Panels at front hood and on the roof.
This car breaks the previous record with an average speed of 100 km/h while in previous record the average speed was 73 km/h and it was set in 1988. The Solar Panels were covered before the attempt and the car set the record in only one single charged battery.
However the record is still pending to verify by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) but there is no need to worry about because everything is OK.
