Record for drift on ice achieved this electric car

Not just one, two other world records in ice drift were recorded on a frozen lake in Sweden in a fully electric car and even certified by Guinness world records.

Journalist Richard Meaden sits behind the wheel of the electric Skoda Enyaq RS iV with the aim of winning not one, but two records for the occasion concerning the “Longest Continuous Vehicle Drift on Ice” and the “Longest Continuous Vehicle Drift on Ice (electric car)” with the same car.

Lake Stortjärnen is freezing and temperatures well below zero throughout the day. The circular route on the frozen lake has a circumference of 188,496 meters, with Richard Meaden riding the Skoda Enyaq RS iV on a controlled drift for 7,351 km, thus surpassing the last record of 6,231 km. that occurred in China in 2022 with a gasoline car.

To achieve these two records, the electric Enyaq RS iV dribbled 39 full cycles in a time of 15 minutes and 58 seconds, recording a maximum speed of 48.69 km / h and lowest at the slowest point of the circular route, 31.64 km / h.

The production Skoda Enyaq RS iV was fitted with 20-inch wheels. Michelin’s 245/35 R20 tyres featured 600 studs in total on the front axle of 5 mm. for better adhesion and directionality to the frozen surface.
