Lap of The Ring in an Electric Car

By Deane Barker on September 18, 2011

TOYOTA: EV Record around Nurburgring: Think every electric car is a Prius?  Toyota recently set a record around the Ring – 7 minutes, 47 seconds in an electric car.

Here’s a full-length video of it, which is eerily quiet, but awesome.  I wish there was more information about the car, but I haven’t been able to turn much up.  I wish they had telemetry from the car – would love to know what speed it was hitting when it went across the valley.
