Southern California automaker Fisker Automotive is now the first company to hold the world record for “Highest Number of Single-Brand Electric Vehicles to be Charged Simultaneously,” with 45 owners of its Karma EV having their cars charged at the same time at an event organized by the company’s Dutch retailer, Fisker Nederland.
The 45 Karma Electric Vehicle owners also helped set the world record for “Highest Number of Mixed-Brand Electric Vehicles to be Charged Simultaneously,” which now stands at 50, up from the previous record of 43 set in May of this year.
Both records were confirmed by Stichting E-Laad, the Dutch foundation for the promotion of electric driving.
Fisker Nederland is Fisker Automotive’s most successful European representative, having sold more than 130 Karmas since the beginning of this year. The gathering was organised for Sunday the 2nd of September at the Floriade Horticultural World Expo in Venlo, Netherlands, where 60 240-volt charge points were temporarily installed for the occasion.
“We are excited that as an American car company we have had so many European Karma owners make this world-record attempt a success,” said Fisker Automotive co-founder Mr. Bernhard Koehler. “They have helped make history and show that electric vehicles with extended range are the future.”
