TUfast eLi14 Is The World’s Most Efficient Electric Car With A 26,135 MPG Equivalent

This small electric vehicle created by a team from the Technical University of Munich, Germany, will blow your socks off with its efficiency.

Dubbed TUfast eLi14, it’s a tiny single-seater, three-wheeler, with a teardrop design and a small cockpit that will host the driver in a lying-down position. It was originally created two years ago, for the Shell Eco Marathon, but in order to achieve its record-breaking status, its motor was upgraded with revised magnet placement and silver wire coils, and the initial wheels were replaced with a new set.

On its first run, at Audi’s test facility, it achieved an energy use of 1,142 km/kWh (710 mi/kWh), but the team continued to improve the vehicle and eventually got 1,232 km/kWh (765.53 mi/kWh). Convert their accomplishment into the numbers we’re all used and you get the equivalent of 26,135 mpg US (0,009 lt/100 km), which results in a theoretical travel distance of 10,956 km (6,808 miles) on a single liter of 95 RON petrol.

The students’ hard work, which concluded after one year of preparation, reserved them a spot into the Guinness World Record for the Most Efficient Electric Vehicle.
