DeLaSalle Electric Car - Ultra Light-weight Aerodynamic Body

DeLaSalle Electric Car
The new electric car designed by Student DeLaSalle School in Kansas City, Missouri, in collaboration with technical engineers Bridgestone Americas' Center of Akron, Ohio built. The DeLaSalle electric car has just completed testing on Bridgestone's Texas Proving Grounds and its developers believe it may have set a new world record for efficiency.

DeLaSalle The electric car as a class project, led by instructor Steve Rees built. DeLaSalle The electric car is a plug-in electric built in 2000 Lola Indy Car chassis.

The students have developed the DeLaSalle electric car's driveline, electric propulsion system and the full, ultra light-weight aerodynamic body. Dressed with Bridgestone Ecopia EP100 tires, the DeLaSalle electric car managed to get during testing an efficiency equivalent to a 300 mpg fuel consumption.
The developers are petitioning the Guinness World Records to consider their electric car as a new world record.
