About the eKart 2.0-project

The IEEE Student Branch Ghent started the construction of the eKart 2.0 in 2013. The purpose of the project was to build a faster successor of the eKart 1.0. During 3 years, a large team of engineering students, guided by several IEEE members, worked hard to achieve this goal, they spent numerous nights in the lab and workshop to get it done.

Therefore we are very proud to demonstrate the result of all the hard work, to all ekart/IEEE and technology enthousiasts. Especially for all the people who worked on this project in those 3 years, this is a unique chance to experience the results of your work!

Some technical details:

  • Power: 2x5kW BLDC motors
  • Batteries: 4x 12V lead-acid batteries
  • Weight: approx. 130 kg
  • Topspeed: approx. 70km/h


We will leave by bike at the Plateau at 19:15 or you can join us directly at eKart, Dok Noord 7 at 19:30.
