The UNSW Solar Racing Team team, Sunswift, beat the long-standing electric car world land speed record with their eVe solar car.
The record attempt still has to be ratified by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile, but all things going to plan then FIA should officially recognise the Sunswift eVe as the fastest electric car to ever complete a 500km set distance course. The previous record was set in 1988, so it has stood for some time, but its 73km/h average speed placing has been decimated by the UNSW team’s over 100km/h average result over 500km.
