Huge amount of Teslas, BMW i3, and VW EVs.
Although the Guinness Book of World Records has yet to officially recognise the feat, 746 electric vehicles paraded in the Netherlands, on the A270, from Helmond and Eindhoven, to set a new world record. The 2.2-mile stretch of road was closed in Brabant, a province in the south of the Netherlands, to make way for the festivities.
The event was organised in advance by Rotary Club member Eindhoven Eeckaerde. Participating vehicles ranged from Teslas, to Nissans and Renaults. There were also a number of electric buses, trucks, bikes, and Segways. A solar car was also featured in the parade. The previous record had been set in Berlin in May of 2015 and included 577 EVs.
All proceeds raised as part of the event will be donated to an educational program for children in disadvantaged neighbourhoods.
