Electric vehicle parade beats previous record

A turnout of 576 electric vehicles at the DHL Berlin ePrix has been officially recognised as the world record for the largest ever electric vehicle parade.

The parade, which took place before the Berlin ePrix at the Tempelhof track in May, beat the previous record of 507 which was set in 2014. A number of small cars, scooters and luxury cars made up the total of 576, with the most represented vehicle being the Citroen C-Zero.

Each of the vehicles completed a lap of the 2.47-kilometre track and were all 100% eletric and road legal.

The event was organising by Swiss Environmental Adventurer Louis Palmer, holder of the ‘Champion of the Earth Award'. At the time of the event, he said "Berlin has set the number very high now, and it was impressive to see the support and enthusiasm of so many people for setting up this new world record for electric mobility. The majority of participants came from Germany, and some even from as far as Norway, Turkey and India."
