Despite the trend, the public interest in the world in electric cars is still very small. The reason is none other cars cruising a short electrical current.
However, German students break the assumption that by creating an electric car and broke the record as far as 1031 miles with just a single charge.
Electric cars are named after this Schluckspecht managed to break the record by walking as far as 1013 miles or about 1630 kilometers with a single battery charge. The record is far to break the previous record in numbers approximately 623 miles or 1002.6 kilometers with just a single charge.
When judging from its name, there are contradictions that are strong enough in this car. Because Schluckspecht can be translated as ‘heavy drinkers’. Though this car did not drink gasoline.
This car is a car that was built through a partnership between Pforzheim University, Fraunhofer Institute for EMI and the University of Offenburg.
To break the record, the four riders of students willing to drive a Schluckspecht alternately for 36 hours and 12 minutes to be monitored directly by officials and local television.
To make it as a super-efficient cars, the students outsmart some of the things on this car from the chassis using a lightweight, minimizing the space to design a vehicle design in order to make it as efficient as it might take power.
Schluckspecht power stored in 14 lithium-cobalt batteries stored in the body.
The success of this Schluckspecht was not created blink of an eye, but can take up to 14 years with several times changed its students.
Team’s goals they make Schluckspecht is to create good new vehicle technologies that can be acceptable to the market of the future.
