Recharging your electric vehicle within 2 minutes. That is the goal of InMotion. The key technology that we aim to develop is fast-charging. We believe this is the best way to compete in the race and it will remove the last obstacle for people to go electric! To prove that this concept has potential, the goal is to participate in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2023. Racing day and night; The 24 Hours of Le Mans tests our limits and abilities. A class in which only one car is allowed to enter, a class for pure innovation with only safety rules, a class in which only one car has been able to finish before. InMotion will push the automotive industry by participating with the first electric race car in the contest ever, the Vision: the race car of the future.
By participating in the Garage 56 class, we show the world the abilities and technologies of future engineers. Without any technical restrictions on safety, we can exploit our creative minds. Theoretical knowledge from the university will be applied in practice, and dreams will become reality.
Our biggest milestone: the realization of the Fusion. The Fusion is the fastest electric formula race car worldwide. After building the car for 2.5 years we were able to hit the road, and not without any results!
On June the 4th 2017, only four months after the first drive, we broke the electric lap record on Circuit Zandvoort! Beating our colleagues from Delft by a stunning 16 seconds! Beitkse Visser, our record driver, set the new record at 1:48:371.
Barely two months later, on July the 15th, we surprised the world again by breaking another electric lap record! This time, our driver Xavier Maassen set the new record at 1:42:641 on Circuit Zolder. We were no less than 19 seconds faster than the previous holder!
On July the 21st 2018, one year later, we got another record in our pocket! This time, we set the electric lap record at TT Circuit Assen. With an incredible time of 1:43:059, it will be tough for future electric cars to beat. For this record, we had a new driver: Jeroen Mul.
