Hi All,

I'd like to invite everyone in the SF Bay Area and outlying areas to come to the World Record-breaking Event at De Anza College on September 20th. We already have over 250 EVs signed up and need another 232 to meet the record.

We're going for over 1000 EV so that no one can easily break the record in the near future.

Sign Up HERE: https://driveelectricweek.org/event.php?eventid=162

Right now Smart does not have a very good showing (only 3 EDs so far). I know there are more of us out there in the SF Bay. Come On Down!!!

If you register early you will receive a Free T-Shirt, Decal and Raffle Ticket. The Raffle has lots of $500+ prizes, like home charging stations.

If you don't have an EV and still want to come, you can get free food if you test drive an EV while at the event.


WHAT: 42nd Annual EV Rally + World Record
WHERE: 21250 Stevens Creek Blvd, Cupertino, CA 95014
WHEN: Parade: 7 AM - 10 AM, Rally: 10 AM - 4 PM


Remember to Sign Up to be a part of the Parade and get free stuff

FYI
The Smart ED is currently accounted for the 6th largest group of EVs in the All Electric World Record Parade happening this Saturday at De Anza College in Cupertino, CA.

I'm glad to see 12 EDs. But considering the sales numbers, I was hoping for 50.

We're very close to the record. I hope to see you out there, if you can makes it.

Free Coffee, Donuts, and Cash Prizes to the first 500 EVs that show up.

For those who cannot participate in the SF Bay Area Annual EV Rally, you can lookup a local EV rally event that is taking place on the same date (Saturday Sept. 20, 2014).

To lookup an EV rally event near you visit this link and enter your zip code into the search field on the map. https://driveelectricweek.org/events.php
Note: you must register either as a visitor, participant, volunteer, etc. You do not have to provide EV rides for attendees unless you choose to do so. Most events should provide a nearby charge station for topping up your EV; however, due to the number of limited charge stations at most event locations, it's likely there will be a waiting line to use them. Be prepared by having a full charge prior to participating if you're providing free rides to attendees.

For me there's an EV rally event in San Antonio, TX (only x1 Smart ForTwo ED participating, it's mine. :wink: )

Thanks for letting everyone know about the events in other states (and nations). There are nearly 150 events happening in connection to Drive Electric Week :D

We're getting VERY close to breaking the record. Please come if you are in the SF Bay area. Lets show that EDs are the best little EV out there.

New Guinness World Record: 507 Electric Cars In One Place

Start those patriotic cheers, because the U.S. can now claim the record for most electric cars in one place.

A judge from the Guinness Book of World Records certified on Saturday that 507 electric cars were gathered at an event in Cupertino, California, beating the total set at an event in Germany earlier this year.

Only battery-electric cars were counted toward the total. While there were many plug-in hybrids on hand, the record only applies to vehicles that use electricity as their sole source of energy.

Even electric bikes were left out of the tally, because they have a secondary source of power in the form of pedals.

There was still a wide variety of vehicles present, including examples of the Nissan Leaf, Tesla Model S, Toyota RAV4 EV, and Kia Soul EV.
