New electric car world record, Lenze Schmidhauser supports Formula Student

From zero to hundred in 1.513 seconds: students of the Academic Motorsports Club Zurich (AMZ) succeeded in setting a new acceleration world record with their “grimsel” electric racing car. The electrically driven “Formula Student” racing car runs with MOBILE inverters by Lenze Schmidhauser. The manufacturer of drive solutions for electric and hybrid vehicles is a sponsor and supplier to the motor sport competition for young engineers.




One year of work for the young engineers

The Formula Student team vehicle broke the current world record of 1.779 seconds – the racing car reached a speed of 100 hours per kilometre in less than 30 metres. Thirty ETH Zurich and Lucerne university students worked a whole year on the vehicle. In summer 2014 “grimsel” already brought the team several victories.

For Lenze Schmidhauser it is already the second vehicle to run with a frequency inverter from the MOBILE series. As Jonas Schuster, Head of Sales and Marketing, Lenze Schmidhauser remarks: “Our inverters are specially designed for use in commercial vehicles, their compact design is also ideal for implementation in the Formula Student. Our congratulations go to the young engineers, their “grimsel” development is the most successful vehicle in AMZ history”.
