The Sunday Guardian - - The Week -

BER­LIN: A bunch of elec­tric ve­hi­cle en­thu­si­asts are rolling along to Switzer­land in green-pow­ered cars to raise aware­ness for sus­tain­abil­ity. On 11 June, 70 teams from 10 coun­tries set out on the over 1,110 mile jour­ney from Ger­many to Basel in Switzer­land. The con­voy, which con­sists of e-bikes, trucks, and even retro­fit­ted clas­sic cars, is a part of the an­nual World Ad­vanced Ve­hi­cle Ex­pe­di­tion (WAVE) Tro­phy EV Rally which started in 2011. The par­tic­i­pants will also in­ter­act with sus­tain­abil­ity com­pa­nies that are en-route, apart from ed­u­cat­ing the pub­lic about green trans­port. Last year, WAVE brought to­gether 576 ve­hi­cles and set a Guin­ness World Record for largest pa­rade of elec­tric ve­hi­cles.
