In September, 507 all-electric cars gathered in Cupertino, California to set a new Guinness World Record in this discipline: Largest EV Parade (see post one and two).

Recently, we found two new videos and in the first you can see all the EVs that participated.

“Watch EV drivers from across California come together to break the Guinness World Record for the largest parade of electric vehicles.”

“Attempt to set a world record for largest parade of EV vehicles on Sep 20 in Cupertino. Our Chevy Spark EV was part of it. The current record holder was Stuttgard Germany with 481 vehicles. This video shows the time lapse of the parade and the official announcement of the result. Did Cupertino beat the record? Watch the video and find out!”


Nissan also put together this footage:

Cool videos. I find it interesting to see jus how many Nissan LEAF’s were in the parade, appeared to be the dominant car. Here in Philly, the LEAF might be #3 in popularity, behind the Volt and Tesla Model S. Maybe not, but that’s just my casual observation. Wish I could have seen the variety of EV’s in person. Many of those cars are not even available outside of CA. On a trip to SoCal over the summer I did see Model S, LEAF, Volt, Spark EV’s, Fiat,Ford Plug in hybrids(Focus and C-Max, BMW I3 and even a Kia Soul(out on test run before formal release). Never did see any Toyota Rav 4 EV’s. Oh yes, I did see ONE Mitsubishi I-MiEV. That equalled the number I have seen out here on our Philly rooads. Can’t wait to see these cars out east. Better times are on their way for EV’s!!!!

Some seven hundred EVs were there. I attended the event. Some were disqualified for the official count.
