Verdensrekorden er hjemme / Guinness World Record is official

Our world record attempt "The World's Largest Parade of Electric Cars" in Silkeborg, is now officially approved by Guinness World Records.


Det er med stor glæde at den danske elbilforening, Forenede Danske Elbilister (FDEL) nu kan meddele, at Guinness World Records netop har godkendt den over 3 km lange parade af 402 elbiler ved åbningsceremonien for motorvejen omkring Silkeborg, som officiel verdensrekord.

Paraden foregik under stor opmærksomhed den 11. september 2016 og tiltrak deltagere fra hele landet, samt en række Europæiske lande såsom Norge, Ukraine, Sverige og Tyskland. FDEL takker endnu engang de mange deltagere som mødte op i deres elbiler og som med paraden var med til at synliggøre elbilen som et miljørigtigt befordringsmiddel, der stort set lydløst gled forbi hobevis af tilskuere langs den nye motorvejsstrækning, der forbinder Silkeborg med Aarhus og Herning.

Det er med verdens længste elbilsparade lykkes FDEL at markere Danmark som en grøn nation på verdenskortet. Formanden for FDEL, Martin Messer Thomsen udtaler at han er stolt over at FDEL kunne løfte et så stort arrangement, og bringe det igennem nåleøjet hos Guinness World Records. Han konstaterer at græsrødderne blandt danske elbilister ikke fejler noget, selvom den politiske opbakning til elbiler i Danmark halter for tiden.

It is with great pleasure that the Danish electric car union, Forenede Danske Elbilister (FDEL), is now able to announce that Guinness World Records has recently validated the more than 3 kilometer long parade consisting of 402 electric cars taking place at the opening ceremony of the Silkeborg highway, as an official word record.

The parade took place on September 11, 2016, and it attracted a lot of attention, as some of the participants came from different countries around Europe, including participants from Norway, Ukraine, Sweden, Germany, and of course people from all over Denmark. FDEL would like to thank all of the people who showed up in their electric car, and as part of the parade assisted in visualising the electric car as an eco-friendly vehicle, which more or less drove silently past dozens upon dozens of spectators who stood along the new highway stretch, that connects Silkeborg with Aarhus and Herning.

FDEL succeded with the World's longest parade of electric cars to internationally highlight Denmark as a green nation. The spokesman of FDEL, Martin Messer Thomsen, says that he is proud that FDEL was able to host an event of this scale, and at the same time succeeding in getting the record approved by Guinness World Records. Martin Thomsen says with certainty that the voluntary forces among the Danish electric vehicle drivers are still going strong, even though the political support toward electric vehicles in Denmark is currently shortcoming.
