Nissan Leaf Drives Into Record for Largest Parade of Electric Cars

November 30, 2012

In a feat of electric car prowess, Nissan brings together a convoy of 225 Nissan Leafs to break the record for “largest parade of electric vehicles.” The cars were paraded around the Silverstone racing circuit in London to break the 218 vehicle Guinness World Record previously held by Chrysler.

Nissan LEAF owners travelled from around the UK, from as far afield as Aberdeen and Belfast, to meet up at the world-famous Formula One circuit on Saturday, November 24. The event was organized by Nissan to bring together owners of the world’s best selling electric vehicle to share their ownership experiences and to gather information about how they use their cars.

Joined by famous faces including actor and presenter Robert Llewellyn and UK television presenter Dallas Campbell, the cars paraded around the circuit for just over two miles under the watchful eye of the Guinness World Record adjudicators.

Paul Willcox, Senior Vice President for Nissan Europe commented: “It was great to see so many LEAFs on the track at the same time and to hear how far some of our owners travelled to take part. We are delighted to have broken the Guinness World Record and to have our customers at the heart of that success.”

The Nissan LEAF entered the record books earlier this year by becoming the fastest car over a mile in reverse, set at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June by stunt driver Terry Grant.
