IIT students build an electric car that goes 1 to 100 kmph in 3.5 seconds
The IIT Bombay Racing team has built an electric racing car that goes from 1 to 100 kmph in 3.5 seconds! The car will participate in “Formula Student”, an international student motorsport event held annually at the Silverstone circuit in UK in July.
The IIT Bombay team, comprised of 75 students from various disciples, is completely independent of the college and has done everything from car design, to construction, to sponsorships entirely by itself. The students will soon be competing against over 100 teams from 35 countries in a competition sponsored by the likes of Mercedes Petronas, Jaguar, Land Rover, Airbus, and Shell.
