Elliot and his Dad Win a Guinness World Record!

While I was in New York, Elliot and his dad got to participate in National Drive Electric week. Plug In America organized an EV rally in Cupertino, and invited an official Guinness World Records adjudicator to come see if they would beat the current record for most EVs in one place (Stuttgart, Germany: 481 EVs).

They had to get up at 6am on a Saturday - but Elliot was motivated. They were giving away t-shirts, and he would get a chance to see Stella (the world's first family solar car).

It looked for a while like they might not beat the record... but when the official tally came in, Cupertino had 507 EVs in attendance - 26 more than the 481 EVs recorded in Stuttgart.
