Tokyo-based civic group Japan Electric Vehicle Club recently announced with pride that its customized Mira EV has traveled for over 1,000 kilometers using a single charge of battery.

The club set a new record of 1,003.184 kilometers for 27 and a half hours without a recharge, breaking its own previous record last month when another electric car drove at a distance of 555.6 kilometers from Tokyo to Osaka. The new record was done inside a driving course in Shimotsuna, Japan, which is also the world’s largest.

The customized electric car was powered by an assembly of over 8,000 Sanyo cylindrical lithium-ion batteries. It ran at an average of 40kph throughout the course.

The team plans on submitting the event to the Guinness World Records to officially recognize the record.

This is very awesome. I don't really think that this kind of car can set that kind of record. Very nice.
