New World Record In Canada: 431 Plug-In Electric Vehicles In One Plac

It appears that a Québec electric-car group has set a new world record for plug-in electric cars gathered in one place.

Yesterday, 431 battery-electric and plug-in hybrid cars gathered in a long parking lot on the Île Sainte-Hélène, just south of the Jacques Cartier Bridge along the Saint Laurence River, in Montréal.

According to an article posted early this morning on the website of L’Association des Véhicules Electriques du Québec, the cars included not only the Chevrolet Volt, Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Nissan Leaf, and Tesla Model S, but also a variety of less common plug-in vehicles.

Organizers said a Bollore BlueCar, of the type used by the AutoLib electric-car-sharing service in Paris, was also present–and so was a Porsche converted to electric power.

There were electric vans, electric motorcycles, and even an electric boat (it wasn’t counted toward the vehicle total) pulled by a plug-in hybrid truck from Via Motors.

It was the “quietest parade of the century,” according to the article, although it noted that the combined effect of pedestrian-alert warbles from more than 100 Nissan Leafs sounded like Snow White’s dwarves whistling while they worked.
