Kreisel Electric Cart Sets New Record – 0-100 km/h in 3.1 Seconds
After three long years – on June 28th, a contender was finally able to break Linde E1’s 2011 Guinness World Record of quickest accelerating electric cart (3.45 seconds).
The new record of 3.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (or 62 mph) was set by a Kreisel Electric cart at a three day event for the Ischgl Cart Trophy in Austria. The event is often referred to as the Formula 1 of the Alps.
Kreisel Electric is a high-end manufacturer based out of Freistadt, Austria, took a 50 kW BRUSA motor and inverter and combined it with high energy density battery pack. The pack weight of just 65 kg, which at 13 kWh is one of the lowest weights we have seen, features some small size cells (actually 1,188 of them)!
Not strange that it was Robin Frijns (Caterham Formula 1 test pilot) who drove the cart to improve upon the previous record result by over 10%.
