A university group named the GreenTeam, from the University of Stuttgart set the Guinness World Record for the fastest 0-62 mph (0-100 kph) electric vehicle acceleration in a 1.461-sec 0-62 mph run.

For almost a year, the 20 members of the GreenTeam have been preparing for the world record.

The GreenTeam E0711 is a genuinely powerful device. The carbon fiber racer has in-house-built motors that drive all four wheels and combine to produce 180 kW (242 horsepower) when powered by the new high-voltage battery pack.
