A Japanese team set a world record for the longest distance traveled by an electric vehicle on a single charge.

The modified Suzuki Every van, equipped with a lithium-ion battery, drove an impressive 1,300 km (807 miles) on a single charge.

This was achieved by a team of four drivers on a 25 km course in the Village of Ogata, which is in the Akita Prefecture. The four drivers each took turns at driving, driving at an average speed of 30 km/h (18 mph).
