New Bosch Go-Kart

New Bosch Go-Kart

Bosch together with the FIA Electric, the New Energy Commission, the German Automobile Association and go kart manufacturer Mach 1 Kart have developed an electric go-kart.

Dubbed the “e-kart”, this prototype is equipped with one pair of electric motors that together deliver a decent 20 kW (27 hp) and an impressive 221 lb-ft of torque as well as an energy recovery system from Bosch that will enter production in 2017.

In practice, the e- kart is able to go from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 5.0 seconds and has a top speed of 130 km/h. As any good electric car, peak torque is available instantly, so with a little touch on the pedal it is possible to “burn” the tires.

What do you think of this electric go-kart? It seems like all that is needed now is the classic roar and smell produced by the internal combustion engine!
