The Nissan Leaf may be able to go 116 miles on a single charge, but it’s got nothing on this Audi A2 EV, which recently set a new world record.
The Audi drove 600 kilometers (372 miles) across Germany, going from Munich to Berlin on a single charge. The trip lasted seven hours with the heating on the whole time, and beat the previous world record holder by nearly 50 kilometers. And apparently the car still had a bit of juice left in it even after that exhausting trip. “If any journalists want to charge up their iPhones, we still have some electricity left,” driver Mirko Hannemann joked upon arriving at Berlin.
