An electric car has made a record journey on a single charge powered by the sun. The solar-powered Sunswift 7 traveled 621 miles (1,000 km) in less than twelve hours to set a Guinness World Record. The car averaged nearly 53 mph (85 km/h) while completing 240 laps of a track to represent the distance from Sydney to Melbourne. Sunswift 7 is the latest in a long line of successful solar powered cars developed by the University of New South Wales. Weighing just 1,200 pounds (500 kg), about a quarter of that of a Tesla, the vehicle boasts impressive efficiency thanks to its aerodynamic design, engine and drivetrain efficiency, and rolling resistance incredibly low For their world record, the UNSW team put the car to the test at the Australian Automotive Research Center (AARC) in Wensleydale, Victoria.
