Electric cars in Germany – level 1

02-06-2015 15:00

Germans really like electric cars. They even have a race for them. But some people stop the race. They stop it to have a parade.

This parade has electric cars in it. It also has electric motorbikes in it. The people do this to break a record. They want to have the most electric cars and motorbikes together. The record is 508 vehicles. They have 577 vehicles. They break the record.

Difficult words: race (when people try to go fast against each other), parade (when a lot of people or things go in a line for a special event), vehicles (things that have motors and we ride in or on them).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
