World's longest electric car road trip 🍀 ends in New Zealand in July 18 2019, after a three-year drive that took dutchman Wiebe Wakker 1222 days through 34 countries. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Bravo 👏 👏👏
Wiebe Wakker set off from the Netherlands in March 2016 in his "Blue Bandit" EV to showcase the potential of sustainable transport
The 101,000 kilometres - 62,758 miles trip took Wakker through Eastern Europe, Iran, India, Southeast Asia. Included: Turkey, Iran, India, Myanmar, Malaysia and Indonesia, before traveling around much of Australia and across to New Zealand
His car Volkswagon Golf named "The Blue Bandit" converted to EV in the name of a zero carbon future.
The 150 kW electric motor gives it a top speed of 180 km/h - 110 mph while the 37 kWh Li-ion battery pack offers a 200 km - 124 mi range per charge
Wakker said "I wanted to change people's opinions and inspire people to start driving electric by showing the advantages of sustainable mobility.
If one man can drive to the other side of the world in an electric car, then EVs (electric vehicles) should definitely be viable for daily use."
