Stafl Systems Provides Technology for New World Speed Record
SAN FRANCISCO—Stafl Systems, a proud partner on the latest Genovation world speed record, provided key components and consulting for the Genovation GXE world record speed test this week. The Genovation GXE, an all-electric Corvette, reached a top speed of 205.6 miles per hour during testing in Florida on July 28.
“We have shown, once again, the power of electric vehicle technology with this high-performance car. And we are just at the beginning of what’s possible,” said Erik Stafl, president of Stafl Systems. “There is nothing quite like being pushed back in your seat as the car accelerates to 200 miles per hour and knowing that we have still only scratched the surface with this technology. The future of high-performance electric vehicles is unbelievable. We are proud to be a part of it.”
Stafl Systems was the primary electronics contractor for the world record setting vehicle. The company produced the vehicle control unit, battery management system and worked with a number of subcontractors to provide the other electronic components. In total, Stafl Systems had 19 circuit boards helping with everything from sensing the accelerator pedal position to controlling the electric powertrain to regulating the charge and discharge of the vehicle’s 44 kWh lithium ion batteries.
