OSU team claims land speed record for electric vehicle

By Editor


An electric-vehicle built by a team from Ohio State University (OSU) has reportedly set a land speed record of 240.3 miles per hour.

The Venturi Buckeye Bullet set the record on a 12-mile course on the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah. The team has reported that the record was accomplished despite some rough track conditions.

The record (for the specific vehicle type ‘Category A Group VIII Class 8’) though, is yet to be certified by an international governing body.

Previously the OSU team has had other vehicles that set records in other categories. The Center for Automotive Research of OSU is developing and testing such vehicles in collaboration with Venturi, an automaker with offices in Monaco.
