Eximus II is the evolved version of last year’s world record holder for the most energy-efficient rail bound vehicle. It is also the world’s most energy efficient vehicle for people transport – all categories.
The Delsbo Electric competition takes place in Delsbo, a village at the center of Sweden and it’s open to students from around the world. On the 27:th of May 2017, students from Dalarna University finished the 3,36-km race-track using only 0,73 Wh per person/km.
That is the equivalent of using less than one-fifth of a teaspoon of gasoline for transporting one person ten kilometers. As a comparison, an average commuter train uses 77 times more energy to transport a person the same distance. Eximus II runs on four 12-volt batteries, is made of aluminum and 3D-printed plastics. It weighs around 117 kg (257 lbs) and it is equipped with a 250W engine.
