UK-made electric car touches 185 MPH | Deccan Chronicle

Car maker Nissan has launched the world’s fastest electric car that can reach 185mph — twice the speed of electric cars currently available in the market.

Nissan’s Zero Emission On Demand Racing Car (ZEOD RC) is fitted with modified versions of the electric technology used in the British car maker’s LEAF model. The ZEOD RC will make its race debut at 2014 Le Mans 24 Hour event in France.

The car will compete under the Automobile Club de l’Ouest’s “Garage 56” entry — an additional spot on the grid for vehicles that showcase new and innovative technology.

The car maker plans to test several types of engine and electric technologies on ZEOD RC over the next year to increase its performance for the race. These trials will then be used to create technology for future electric cars.

The ZEOD RC design team was headed by Ben Bowlby, who was recently appointed as the company’s Director of Motorsport Innovation. “The tech developed through the program will form part of future innovations for road cars,” Bowley said.
