On Sunday March 25th three Dutchmen broke the current world record electric driving. In 24 hours they drove 2.888 kilometers with a hydrogen electric car. That’s a longer distance then the old world record of 2383 kilometer from ‘The Viking & The Scientist’ and even better then the world record battery electric driving. That record is held since 2016 by Horst Lüning (Germany).

The Dutchmen started on saturday March 24th at 11:05 hour from Tank & Rast Fürholzen-West in Munich. They then continuously commuted the A9 towards Nürnberg and vice versa. In doing so, they respected all speed limits.

There were always two people on board, a driver and a navigator. There was a change at every refueling, the third team member could rest in a camper that was taken with it.

The ride has been tracked with ElektriciteitTijdrit (www.elektricitijdrit.nl).

With the trip planning traffic density was included and the network of filling stations. According to traffic jams the trip has been amended. During the trip the stations of Fürholzen-West, Airport Munich, Pentloing, Ingostadt and Ulm have been visited.

With this world record attempt, the Dutch wanted to draw attention to the possibilities of hydrogen as emission-free fuel for passenger cars. In Germany there is now a network of more than 40 hydrogen stations. In the Netherlands there are three at the moment. The Dutch government has announced that it wants to open 7 new hydrogen stations.

The world record attempt was made with help from E-xpeditie.nl, WaterstofWerkt.nl, Van der Linden
Group and H2.LIVE.

E-xpeditie.nl is a Dutch blog about the transition to electric driving. In the past, they organized a
successful world record attempt to drive electric cars (48 hours).

WaterstofWerkt.nl is a Dutch platform that wants to encourage the transition to hydrogen electric
driving.

The Van der Linden Group is a Hyundai dealer that made the hydrogen car available for this purpose.

H2.LIVE is an app that provides insight into charging points and route planning for hydrogen electric
drivers.
