Only recently, Antonin and Xavier – two eco-driving enthusiasts – completed their Electric Odissey.
Thus, they left France back in February, covered a distance of roughly 15,500 miles, crossed as many as 17 countries and made it back to their starting point after only eight months.
In case anyone is wondering why it is that their eight-month journey is referred to as the Electric Odissey, here is your answer: Antonin Guy and Xavier Degon covered said distance behind the wheel of an all-electric Citroen C-Zero.
Apparently, the two adventurers only needed to charge the car about 300 times, and spent roughly ₤202 (roughly €254 / $326) on electricity.
As they later told members of the press
, they merely wanted, “to improve the image of electric cars with the general public and reassure people concerning their use.”
From where we stand, Antonin Guy and Xavier Degon thoroughly succeeded in showing that EVs are not just for one short trip to the supermarket.
