Students Set New EV Acceleration World Record: 0-62 MPH In Less Than A Second

• Inside EVs

The Tesla Model S Plaid's Ludicrous mode might not be ludicrous enough for applied sciences students from ETH Zurich and Lucerne University. The students have broken the acceleration world record for electric vehicles in a single-seater open-cockpit car called "mythen", and the Guinness World Record appears to have recognized the same.

Part of a group called the Academic Motorsports Club Zurich (AMZ), the students took roughly a year to develop a car that can accelerate from 0-62 miles per hour in just nine-tenths of a second, or 0.956 seconds to be precise, beating the previous world record of 1.461 seconds set in September 2022 by a University of Stuttgart team.
