A Toronto-based company Daymak Inc. has announced its latest product, Daymak-C5-Blast Go-Kart, which is slated to be the fastest electric go kart in the world. The speediest clean energy go kart in the world is expected to achieve 0 to 60 in less than 1.5 seconds. According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the current record is being held by Hochschule Osnabrück Institut MuT, which was clocked at 0 to 60 in 2.635 seconds.
The C5 Blast Go-Kart features a liquid cool 10000w watt motor, Daymak Drive controller, 8 EDF motors for combined output of 96 kg of upwards thrust and 4 rear EDF motors for 60kg of forward thrust. The Go Kart weighs approximately 200kg, but after turning it on using the EDF motors and Daymak technology to balance the weight, goes down to approximately 100kg, making it extremely light and fast. The Daymak-C5-Blast Go-Kart will be built in the new Daymak manufacturing facility located in Toronto, Canada. The company will offer two versions: Daymak C5 Blast regular with only 1 motor ($9999) and Daymak C5 Blast EDF model ($59,995).
Preliminary testing has the unit hovering around the record already and only in its alpha stage.
Daymak designs, develops and distributes light electric vehicles (LEV’s) with over 150 dealers. Its accolades to date include: The Clean Tech North American Award and Profit Magazine’s Top 100, 200 fastest growing Canadian companies, and being named one of Ontario’s greenest companies.
