    The WAVE 2014 is nearing again and wants to beat its 2013, and current official World Guiness record of 305 EV`s ! This time the parade will start directly from Daimler Museum in Stuttgart at 10:00 and drive in total 3,5 km, around VfB Soccer stadion and finish at 11:30 at the parking area almost in front of Porsche Arena. We want to achieve 500+ and not only with Smarts.......

    @Tony Williams : You inspected factory parking lot of T .... ? :wink:


    Next week in Stuttgart (hometown of the automobile) pretty much all major ZE brands / vehicles on the market will be very present. Good luck beating that one, besides the overall number that will be achieved. Come and watch it yourself !

    Hybrids don't count. There were a bunch of Amperas/Volts at the Montreal event.

    There is also a world record attempt underway in Norway. They have 273 electric cars signed up as of today, and the event will be held on Sunday the 25. of May at 13:00. (And this *isn't* in the Oslo region, where most of the electric cars in Norway are situated.)

    Probably, the WAVE 2014 will beat the Norwegian record (if one is achieved), but I guess they'll have the record for about a week.

    We intend to have the "World's Largest Electric Vehicle Gathering" in Irvine (Orange County), California on Saturday, August 9, 2014. We won't have hybrids; just EV's.

    The Countdown is running. Keep us updated, Tony !


    Tomorrow the 4th Automobilclub von Deutschland Bertha Benz Challenge will start in Frankfurt. In the spirit of Bertha Benz all participating innovative cars, partly prototypes (!), will be driving along the world` oldest automobile road, the Bertha Benz Memorial Route. More about this unique route you ll find here :

    Bertha Benz Memorial Route


    With 194 Km it is no challenge for a Model S, but it becomes quite challenging if you add some laps on the Hockenheimring racecircuit............

    Looking forward to the day that over a thousand cars of EVs are bumper to bumper and we just call it "traffic".

    Just saying.
