How it all occurred?
Hero MotoCorp’s Vida V1 electric scooter has set a new Guinness World Record for the greatest distance covered by a team in relay on an e-scooter in 24 hours, covering an impressive 1780 km. The six-rider team took turns to ride the Vida V1 in a relay format, with battery swaps supported by a team of engineers from CIT. Most of these breaks were under 20 seconds, highlighting the Vida V1’s removable battery feature.
This achievement showcases the engineering excellence of the Vida V1, which boasts a best-in-class combination of performance, range, and top speed. With this world record title, the Vida V1 establishes itself as a robust product that can perform in any environment. According to Swadesh Srivastava, Head of Emerging Mobility Business Unit at Hero MotoCorp, this performance and endurance-oriented world record should provide impetus to the entire EV industry, confirming that the category is ready with mature and high-performance products.
The team started their attempt at 6:45 AM on April 20 and broke the existing record at around 2 AM on April 21, 2023. The crew completed the final lap at 6:45 AM on the same morning, marking an incredible achievement, especially considering the intense summer heat of Jaipur. As Swapnil Dangarikar, Official Adjudicator of Guinness World Records stated, “It is a remarkable achievement as the previous record has been broken by nearly 350 km and that too in the intense summer heat of Jaipur. Hero MotoCorp’s Vida V1, you are now officially Amazing!“
