Electric cars in Germany – level 2

02-06-2015 15:00

In Germany, electric cars are so popular that there is a Formula E race based on racing in electric cars. But recently, a race stopped when enthusiasts tried to break a world record by bringing the most electric cars and motorbikes together ever in a motorcade.

The motorcade had 577 vehicles while the record was 508 vehicles, so the enthusiasts broke the record. One man said that it was important to show how much they like electric cars and to show that they are fun.

Difficult words: enthusiast (a person who really likes something), motorcade (a long line of vehicles like cars).

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