Mission Motorsport sets a world record of hypermiling a standard Renault ZOE at Thruxton

10 Jun 21

Mission Motorsport, The Forces’ Motorsport Charity, has set the world record of hypermiling a standard Renault ZOE.

The team of British veterans, the spouse of a serving soldier, and a hypermiling expert, undertook an assault on the existing record for the longest distance driven in a Renault ZOE, on a single charge.

The 2018 French record of 7.9 miles per kilowatt hour – an incredibly high bar – was surpassed by the British team with 9.14 miles per kilowatt hour, without the benefit of higher ambient temperatures.

Driving at the optimum average speed of 19mph, the Renault ZOE reached a world beating 475.4 miles on a single charge, smashing the French record by 124.4 miles.

Mission Motorsport aids in the recovery of those who have been affected by Military Operations by providing opportunities through motorsport and the automotive industry. Launched at Thruxton, in March 2012, the charity has today returned to the fastest circuit in the UK, nine years later to raise the bar for British hypermiling and turn the fastest circuit in the UK, into the most efficient circuit in the UK!
