ou est le plug around the world in eight months in an ev

In 1873, it took Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout eighty days to get around the world, mostly by slow trains and steamships. 150 years later, that trip can take eight months\ when you do it by EV. One of the drawbacks when you have to stop every 60 miles to wait for yo r car to recharge.

Antonin Guy and Xavier Degon left Strasbourg, France on Feb. 11, writes Hybridcars. Their goal: To round the globe in a re-badged Mitsubishi i-MiEV, now called Citroën C-Zéro. On September 24, they were back in Strasbourg,

Their trip led them through 17 countries and they covered 16,383 miles. To do so, they had to stop and charge their ride close to 300 times.

While some charging points were anticipated in advance, the crew’s biggest challenge has often been to convince the encountered inhabitants to lend them their outlets.
