Toyota has managed to set a new Guinness World Record for having the most vehicles in a hybrid parade. The special event took place on April 23rd at the Naval Air Station Alameda in California.
332 Prius owners have gathered and have managed to break the old record. Apparently, all the guests were invited to drive on a specially designed course, enjoy some food, and have a chance to win prizes. And because they had 332 cars at their disposal they decided to set a new Guinness World Record.
"The Bay Area is home to hundreds of thousands of proud Prius owners, and we wanted to pay homage to the Prius this Earth Day. Prius is a revolutionary vehicle and the folks behind the wheel who’ve always been our early-adopters, thinking bigger about their carbon footprint and environmental impact”, said Toyota Motor Sales general manager and vice president Pete Carey.
As a reminder, the Toyota Prius uses a 1.8 liter engine and an electric motor. The hybrid power train is managed by a CVT transmission that enables the Prius to return an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of up to 58 mpg city / 53 mpg highway / 56 mpg combined. The maximum output is clocked at 121 horsepower.
