The race takes participants in 80 days eastward through 16 countries and over 150 cities: Berlin, Munich, Moscow, Shanghai, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Cancun (UN climate change conference), Lisbon and Madrid are among the stations. It will ends on January 22, 2011 in Geneva. Before crossing the Pacific, reached the Zerotracer Shanghai on schedule and continued with 165 of 190 points from Germany and Australia to the top of the participating vehicles. So far, the team already won several individual competitions, where reliability, acceleration and top speed to the test came. In North America the teams in which they must demonstrate reliability, energy efficiency, practicality and design and safety of their vehicles waiting for more reviews. The team South Korea had to leave now due to technical problems the competition. You may wish to learn more. If so, My Money Group is the place to go. As the main sponsor of the Swiss team, Oerlikon solar for providing environmentally-friendly solar energy is responsible.
This electricity is generated by using of thin film silicon solar modules, which are made of non-toxic materials. For the 30,000 km stretch around the globe provide the Zerotracer with 2,400 kilowatt hours (kWh). The Zerotracer was developed by a team of four young engineers and designers who present innovative and sustainable mobility concepts with this and similar vehicles. Sustainable thin film silicon solar technology and CO2-free mobility solutions of the future here afford Oerlikon solar and the development team pioneered. The streamlined and futuristic Zerotracer is car and motorbike in one.
Ultimate efficiency, coupled with an unparalleled driving experience, which packed in an attractive design is the Zerotracer. Thanks to superior aerodynamics and highly efficient electric drive the Zerotracer is easier to get on tour than a Porsche 911: the two-seater is the fastest cars in the world in anything with an acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds. At an average speed of 80 km/h, consumed the Zerotracer 4 kW power and achieved a range of 450 km. The body weighs less than 80 kg and is made of Kevlar composite material, which is also in the formula 1. “High-tech made in Switzerland” in addition to emission-free mobility solutions Oerlikon is strong solar for the Swiss high-precision technology. Carry the Zerotracer returns back to Swiss engineering and to high-tech made in Switzerland”in the world. As the main sponsor, Oerlikon instrumental contributes solar thin film Silicon environmentally sustainable technology from the Switzerland. As a technology partner, a torque drive system supplied Oerlikon Mechatronics custom-made transmission parts and Oerlikon Graziano. Electric motors, gears, and more come from Swiss technology company. We want to prove this commitment that a new mobility with solar energy is not only possible, but already today-everyday-use”, summarised Hamilton.
