Ohio State University's Electric Car Reaches 307 mph for New World Record
OSU's team of engineers are in a big hurry in the field of automotive research to produce the fastest, most efficient, most well-designed, most lasting battery, most just about anything in a vehicle. Last month, they set a world record with the Buckeye Bullet 2.5 electric car.
In 2007, they created an electric car that reached 200 mph, but they kept improving the technology and the design of the vehicle, so now, they have passed the 300-mph mark.
At 307 mph, it flew across the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. It beats other machines built for speed, such as the Ferrari and Lamborghini.
Could this innovation and technology bring us closer to a solar-powered electric vehicle?
