Professor helps to set world record

Cal State Monterey Bay Professor Dan Fernandez was one of hundreds of electric vehicle buffs who helped the U.S. reclaim a world record Sept. 20 in Cupertino.

The record for the world’s largest parade of electric vehicles was set at a National Drive Electric Week event at De Anza College. Dr. Fernandez’s Nissan Leaf was one of the 507 vehicles in the parade.
