The new Guinness world record for the number of electric vehicles in a parade stands now at 507.
The new record was set last Saturday at a National Drive Electric Week event in Cupertino, Silicon Valley. The previous record dated from last May when 481 EV’s met in Germany. The parade included only pure electric vehicles, no hybrids. Even electric bicycles did not qualify, because they were not solely dependent on electricity for propulsion…
The blue bike in the photos is the Lightning 218 model, while the red bike is their “production” “commuter” model, which does not have a price or even an official name yet. While Lightning is still working on finalizing the production of the 218, their “commuter” model appears to be a prototype of a model to come.
Maybe it is time for a Guinness world record for just electric two-wheelers!
