The 2014 edition of the World Advanced Vehicle Expedition (WAVE) is set to take place in June. This one-of-a-kind rally is the largest 100% electric vehicle rally in the world, pulling in electric car enthusiasts from many countries.
The WAVE consists of four events with no more than 27 cars in each: the “exclusive WAVE” for exclusive vehicles, the “popular WAVE” for serial models, the “light WAVE” for vehicles under 900 kg and the “e-bike WAVE” for electric bikes and scooters. As with each year, Renault and Nissan EVs are well-represented: the Renault Zoe, Fluence, Twizy and the Nissan LEAF will all be making appearances. Participants will drive from Stuttgart, Germany to Lucerne, Switzerland, while competing along the way in categories such as “best acceleration”, “fastest lap in a closed circuit”, and “most innovative”, all in pursuit of the WAVE trophy for their event.
