Since National Plug In Day became National Drive Electric Week this year, electric-vehicle advocates, or at least the greedier ones, perhaps hoped for a sevenfold increase in attendance. Even though that didn't quite happen, the number of people who showed up to celebrate all that is electric and drives certainly surged. Some even broke a world record for good measure.

Not like we would need an excuse to join a few hundred friends for a springtime plug-in vehicle drive through the Swiss Alps, but the World Advanced Vehicle Expedition (WAVE) is providing us with one.

The sliced EV is complete enough to drive, and was thus eligible to participate in the emissions-free parade.
