The Metron 7 prototype has managed to travel from Berlin to Karsruhe on one charge of its batteries, covering the 826 kilometers between the two German cities and breaking the previous record dating back last October 2014.
The 826 kilometers without recharging driving between the two German cities of Berlin and Karsruhe represent a new record over the last of 731 kilometers, achieved in October 2014. The average speed was of 72 km / h.
The Metron 7 has a first battery package of 86 kWh and a second additional package of 22 kWh. This makes a total of 108 kWh for a battery system that, according to the team, costs around 50,000 euro. To recharge it uses the European rapid charging system via DC Combo 2 with a maximum power of 80 kW, and a second smaller charger, of 10 kW in AC for emergencies.
The electric motor, manufactured by Letrika has a maximum power of 65 kW and is able to deliver a top speed of 178 km / h.
Event: 6,600 kilometers in 96 hours
This prototype is a great example of what can be done with a generous package of batteries and reminds us of that mounted on the latest update of Tesla Model S, of 90 kWh, with 560 km range.
