Norway Sets World EV Parade Record

399 electric vehicles in parade and another few hundred ICE stuck in traffic behind them

On May 25 in Norway a world record for the largest EV parade was set.

399 EVs, mostly Nissan LEAFs and Tesla Model S, gathered in Klepp and then drove 8 km to Bryne.

According to Norsk Elbilforening, this will be a new Guinness World Record, above the previous 260 in Oslo and current 305 in Zurich.

It seems that for some reason the 431 vehicles in Canada are not considered as record, which we believe is due to plug-in hybrids taking part in the parade.

“399 electric vehicles gather in Klepp in Norway to set Guinness World Record for largest EV parade 25.05.2014.”

“The distance driven was about 8 km from Klepp to Bryne.”

“Organised by Jรฆrdagen 2014”

Hat Tip for sigma2 and Ottar!!!

    Did anyone check the license plates? For all we know, it could be 1 Model S and 20 Leafs circling around the block for 20 minutes … just kidding. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love those “EL” licnese plates.
