China's Zhiji L7 Electric Car Drifted 43.6 km in 1 hour and 6 minutes, breaking the Guinness World Record set by Porsche

After 258 laps (equal to 43.646 kilometers or 27.120 miles) on a wet surface, Zhiji Motors' official driver, Wei Pengda, entered the Guinness World Records for the longest drift using an electric car.

Pengda drifted for one hour and six minutes and covered 43.646 kilometers, breaking the previous record established by Porsche official driver Dennis Retera on August 27, 2020, at the Porsche Experience Center in Hockenheim, Germany.

Porsche's official driver drove a rear-wheel drive electric Taycan EV for 55 minutes, totaling 42.171 kilometers (or about 26.203 miles).

Oversteering causes the driver to move the car sideways in regular drifting. The constant, uninterrupted drifting puts the vehicle's power, stability, driving control, and power performance to the test.

The Chinese Zhiji L7 electric sports car, is the result of a collaboration between SAIC, Zhangjiang Hi-Tech, and the Alibaba Group.

It is available in two battery packs: a 93 kWh pack with a stated range of 382 miles (615 km) and a bigger 118 kWh pack with a claimed range of 621 miles (1,000 km).

The L7 has cameras instead of standard side-view mirrors, as well as the capacity to wirelessly charge at up to 11 kW.
