Student-built electric car hits 60mph in just 1.5 seconds



Move over Tesla. There's a new speedy EV making headlines, and it has been built by a group of Swiss students!

The car, named 'Grimsel', was created by student group Academic Motorsports club Zurich and has performed a 0 – 62mph run in just 1.513 seconds, smashing the Guinness world record for acceleration in an electric car. That's 1.3 seconds faster than the time it takes Tesla's Model S to reach 60mph.
