GUINNESS WORLD RECORD FOR MOST ELECTRIC CARS IN ONE PARADE SET IN NORWAY 2013
A total of 260½ electric vehicles were united to drive in unison outside of Norway’s capital city of Oslo on August 31 2013.
“Starting from Maridalen in outer Oslo, the world’s cleanest and quietest automotive gathering of all time followed a pre-determined 4km route and was monitored by two-camera carrying drones to ensure that all vehicles were moving simultaneously and qualified for the new world record.”
This number is 35½ higher than the previous record set solely by Nissan LEAFs on the Silverstone circuit in the UK in 2012.
Norway’s record has been set by the Electric Vehicle Union (EVU) and Norwegian EV Association in Norway.
Almost half of the vehicles (128½) were LEAFs, but as we can see in the attached videos, practically all EVs were represented.
In connection with the Hope Trophy Project and Sharing Copenhagen's "Green Mobility Weeks" in September/October 2014, a new Guinnnes World Record will be attempted. UPDATE:
We just found out that the current record of 305 cars was set in Zurich 2013, after the Oslo version.
Since the record is for an electric-vehicle parade, all participating cars have to move to be counted. Eligible vehicles include all plug-in models. If you want to be part of this attempt in Denmark, please contact CO2 Green Drive HERE
