At the eighth round of Formula E in Berlin, WAVE Trophy team organized an EV parade.

The previous record for such an event stood at 507 on September 22nd 2014 in the Silicon Valley.

Germany broke the record by a big margin by bringing 577 electric cars together for the parade, which is now the new Guinness World Record for longest electric cars and motorcycles parade.

A few more photos can be found on the WAVE website.

“Pressing all thumbs for tomorrows Guinness world record attempt at the old Berlin Tempelhof Airport for world’s longest EV Parade. Berlin hosts the 8th run in 2015 of the FIA Formula E series in the heart of the city at this historic place. More than 800 electric cars are willing to participate to this event.

At least 509 cars will have to participate and successfully cross the finish line in just 55 minutes in order to break the record. We managed the dry run today thanks to the good support of the organization teams with only some drivers – but it looks very promising.”

“YES! The current non-official counting is at 577 cars which have participated to the Guinness world record attempt during the DHL FIA Formula e GP at the former Berlin Tempelhof airport. This means that we’ve got it!

WAVE broke the official world record for the longest EV parade and pushed the limit further up from the previous 508 vehicles. The WAVE electric car rally will begin on the 12th of June 2015 in Berlin, stay tuned for more electric vehicle achievements and join us along the route!”

    So… It’s on again I guess… can Silicon Valley get the Guinness Book back for another try… we would have had close to the new number had we simply gotten all our duckies in a row in 2014… so… should be doable… My wife and I will bring our 2 LEAFs… everyone ready for another go… So… Congratulations Germany and watch out Germany… I hope we can get it back.

      It looked like a bunch of the German vehicles were fleet (carshare?) vehicles. I don’t think we had any fleet vehicles last year. If we can get Google to pony up their entire fleet…
