Watch this EV racer go from 0-100 KPH in under two seconds

It's no secret that electric vehicles are strong performers, both on the streets and in professional racing tracks. But in case you had any doubts, a group of students from GreenTeam Uni Stuttgart have set a new world record with their battery-powered car, becoming the first ever to go from 0-100 KPH in 1.779 seconds. Once evaluated by Guinness World Records, GreenTeam Uni Stuttgart will officially have the fastest accelerating electric vehicle in the world -- the previous record was set at 1.785 seconds by the AMZ Racing Team, another Formula Student competitor, in 2014. It's quite an achievement, to say the least, so watch how it happened in the video below.
