CSE’s Experience Electric – The Better Ride campaign was present at DeAnza College in Cupertino, Calif., to witness electric vehicle (EV) history as attendees at the 42nd Annual Silicon Valley EV Rally broke the Guinness World Record for the largest Electric Vehicle Parade on Saturday, Sept. 20.

Philip Robertson, a Guinness World Records judge, was present and certified that 507 all-electric vehicles fully participated to create the largest EV Parade to date. The previous record was set earlier this year in Stuttgart Germany.

The Silicon Valley EV Rally was one of 152 events that were part of National Drive Electric Week, a nationwide celebration to highlight the benefits of all-electric and plug-in hybrid-electric cars, trucks and motorcycles. CSE’s Clean Vehicle Rebate Project staff presented at seven California events, educating attendees on available incentives.

Experience Electric offered test drives of EVs, including the BMW i3 and Fiat’s 500e. The campaign aims to build awareness, action and demand for plug-in electric vehicles.
