On the Alameda Air Field in Northern California, 332 Toyota Prius owners made a parade lap to celebrate Earth Day. The meeting went straight to the record books, as Guinness World Records representatives were there for the homologation process of the attempt, which proved successful.

Toyota Motor Corporation prides itself on the fact that its Lexus and Toyota brands have double the number of- hybrids on roads than any other automaker.

This parade lap only strengthened Prius's position in the USA, and California in particular. According to Toyota, the state of California accounts for 40% of the country's Prius vehicles.

Considering the sheer number of Prius cars sold worldwide and in the USA, having 40% of a country's Prius “population” in a particular area means a lot. Toyota states that Northern California is “particularly well-known” for its Prius density.

The Bay Area of the Golden State is home to “hundreds of thousands” of Toyota Prius owners, so choosing an ample space in Northern California was a natural choice for the Japanese brand. The entire event was organized by Toyota's North American branch, and it appears that they have done a good job, as they broke a world record.

Taking into account that 332 hybrid cars were enough to break a record, we expect others to attempt to break this Guinness World Records title shortly.

All you have to do to achieve a better result is to convince enough hybrid vehicle owners to gather in a predetermined space at the same time. This should not be too hard if you ask us, especially if the organizer lives in a country where this type of vehicle is popular.

All that's left for those interested is to find a suitable space to organize the event and to provide an incentive strong enough to gather a significant number of hybrid owners. If you ask us, free gas coupons will not cover it, so you must think of something better.
