Made mainly from standard components found in the new Linde E20 – E50 forklift trucks, the Linde E1 has claimed the title of “world’s fastest electric go-kart”. It “accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, creating a new category for the GWR in the process, as such an attempt had never been recorded before.” Video after the break.

Its drive unit is the same as the units used in lift trucks, except that Linde E1 has a lithium ion battery and lift trucks use lead acid batteries.
