Missouri students make world’s most efficient EV?

August 18, 2010 § Leave a comment

Students from DeLaSalle High School, Missouri, have applied to the Guinness Book of Records for formal ratification that they’ve made the world’s most energy-efficient electric car. Their concept car is claimed to return the equivalent of 300mpg – and it looks pretty speedy, as well.

The car was developed with help from the Ohio technical centre of Bridgestone America, and it has been tested on-track in Texas. It is based on a2000 Lola Indy racer’s chassis, with new ultra-light frame and transparent plastic body, and features Bridgestone-supplied wheels with low rolling-resistance tyres (Wired Autopia).
