The Porsche Taycan has set a new Guinness World Record, with a cross-country drive seeing the EV go from coast to coast in the US with under 2.5 hours of charging stops along the way. It’s a sign of how far public electric vehicle infrastructure has come on in recent years, though also a reminder that there’s more to EV ownership than simply where you can plug in. The route itself was straightforward: from Los Angeles, CA all the way to New York City, NY on November 12, 2021. In total, the Taycan drove 2,834.5 miles, Porsche says, with driver Wayne Gerdes pausing at 18 different charging locations for a cumulative total of 2 hours, 26 minutes, and 48 seconds. That’s an average of around 157 miles per charging session. The previous record stood at 7 hours, 10 minutes, and 1 second.
