Formula 1 EV is “World’s Fastest” Electric Racing Car

Formula 1 EV is “World’s Fastest” Electric Racing Car

This joint project came from two French companies, FCI and Formulec, who gathered scores of engineers from the Formula 1 field to build this F1 EV. This vehicle takes less than 3 seconds to accelerate to 60 mph, and has an astonishing top speed of over 155 mph. That’s way, way faster than the Nissan Leaf NISMO RC all-electric race car prototype . Depending on which metric you are comparing, that makes it the fastest “electric racing car” in the world (though the fellows behind the 300 mph Buckeye Bullet land speed racer might have something to say about that.) This F1 EV will tour the world in 2011 before Formulec sets up an all-electric F1 racing series in 2012. Color me excited.
