The TUfast Eco team is committed to the vision that the future of urban mobility will be built on efficiency, sustainable electrification and autonomous driving. We design and manufacture urban concept vehicles designed to maximize the

The ``muc022'' developed by the team is an EV with a maximum speed of 42km/h and weighs 170kg without a driver. The vehicle height is 1000mm and the vehicle width is 1200mm.

Initially, it was equipped with a 440W electric motor, but in preparation for the record, it was changed to a 400W motor. Typical commercially available EVs use silicon carbide (SiC) inverters, but muc022 is equipped with gallium nitride (GaN) inverters.

The record attempt was held inside a hangar at Munich Airport to avoid the effects of weather.

The run went very smoothly, and on the fourth day they achieved the previous world record of 1,608.54km. Since I still had some battery left, I continued to run, and in the end, I covered 2573.79km in 6 days.

Furthermore, Mercedes' EV, which is scheduled to be released in 2024, has recorded a range of 1202 km on a single charge while driving on public roads that are subject to various influences, so the record for possible range will continue to increase. It is considered.
