Germany, the place that brought you the Nürburgring have now built the worlds fastest accelerating electric Go Kart. While we are more commonly aware of electric engines powering cars, it seems they make a pretty great power source for a Go Kart too. The Linde E1 electric kart reached 0-60mph or 0-97km in our language, in just 3.4 seconds.
Electric engines are also making their way to motorbikes and vans and is set to change the automotive industry dramatically over the next 10 years. How long before we see an electric powered truck? Probably a while. While you wait, check out the fastest battery-powered go kart in the world. All I know is.. I want one.
