Nissan Leafs break the world record for largest electric car convoyEnlarge Photo
Agroup of Nissan Leaf owners from around the United Kingdom have broken the world record for the 'largest parade of electric vehicles'.
With 225 Nissan Leafs and an overcast, wet Silverstone race circuit, a parade of 225 cars broke the previous record, held by Chrysler with 218 vehicles.
Nissan UK organized the event to help drivers share ownership experiences, and to gather information on how they use their cars.
Among the drivers was actor, TV presenter, electric car advocate and one-time GreenCarReports contributor Robert Llewellyn, who described the view as "the oddest electric car sight I've ever seen" on Twitter.
The convoy has officially set a new Guinness World Record, under the careful eye of adjudicators.
Paul O'Neill, product manager for the Nissan Leaf in the UK, commented, "[We] want to thank all the owners who helped us achieve this, we couldn't have done it without them."
Now, the only question is--can U.S. Leaf owners set an even higher record?...
