Electric car covers 1,000 km on single charge, sets world record

#1

An electric car in Japan has set a new world record by running for more than 27 hours and covering over 1,000 km without needing to be recharged.

The car named Mira EV travelled at speeds of around 40 kph and ran for 27.5 hours covering a distance of 1,003 km without being recharged on a racing course in Shimotsuma in Ibaraki Prefecture, reports telegraph.co.uk.

The car is fitted with a special lithium ion battery created by the Japanese company Sanyo.

The test run was organised by Japan Electric Vehicle Club and 17 people took turns at the wheel of the electric car.

The club now plans to request the Guinness World Records to officially recognise it as the world's longest electric car drive.

Mira EV's drive of over 1,000 km effortlessly beat the previous world record of single charge driving 555.6 km, which was achieved last November by the same club.
