It was Electric Raceabout, electric sports car

Continues expansion of technologies and changes that are perceived in the world of electric cars, with those models that are ready for the demands of large cities, and others that stand out as electric racing cars, with great benefits and a very high visual quality, using aerodynamic designs and incorporating the latest technology.

A clear example of this is the recently submitted it was Electric Raceabout, a prototype electric car that has been prepared for the high speeds, and which has been proven nothing more and nothing less than at the Nürburgring, a cradle of high speed, by those who have been its developers, students of the applied of Helsinki University Science (Finland)

It has been done with a chassis, entirely made of carbon fibre, under which we find electrical engines four that mobilise their wheels, powered by a pack of batteries of Litio-Titanio that in total they weigh about 550 kg and give a power of 32kWh.

This powerplant together allows you to achieve a continuous 268 HP , with a rated torque of 1000Nm, allowing it to accelerate from 0 to 100 in 6 seconds and reach a maximum speed of 200 kilometers per hour (which could have been higher, and that it was electronically limited)
