The May 2011 magazine issue of Swiss Engineering published a 2 page article featuring the MonoTracer entitled “The Key to Best Overall Efficiency (Der Schlüssel zum besten Gesamtwirkungsgrad)“. The article detailed design features which enable the X PRIZE winning MonoTracer-E to be the world’s most efficient high performance vehicle (click here for the PDF version).
