The E-RA is an ongoing research project by the Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. Previously, the Electric RaceAbout (E-RA) set a new street-legal electric vehicle lap record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife and on Ice.
The E-RA has a 33 kWh Altairnano lithium-titanate battery which powers four-electric motors that develop a peak output of 383 PS (282 kW / 378 bhp) and 3,200 Nm (2,360 lb-ft) of torque. This enables the 1,700 kg (3,747 lb) prototype to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in approximately six seconds and travel approximately 200 km (124 miles) on a single charge. At top speed the E-RA consumed around 1250 Wh/km measured as energy required from grid to recharge the battery.
