Racing Green Endurance completes its 16,000 mile 100% electric Pan-American Highway journey
The team at Racing Green Endurance have pulled it off, driving 16,000 miles (26,000km) from the tip of Alaska down to the bottom of South America, all whilst driving an electric sports car more at home on the racing-track than the dirt-track. Making their trip all the more impressive.
The Racing Green Endurance team have now become the first in the world to drive the entire length of the Pan-American Highway in an electric car, a hell of an achievement especially considering the original design intent of the car.
The journey took 2 years of planning, 140 days of travel, 70 days of driving and the car passed through 14 countries, acting as an ambassador of electric vehicles and green technology. There’s no word yet on the teams next project, they’ll probably busy slamming down champagne and swapping war stories for the next few weeks and rightly so.
Since August 2009, the Racing Green Endurance (RGE) team and Radical Sportscars have been working closely to produce the stunning SRZero electric sportscar. The team will drive the 400bhp twin-motor supercar the full 26,000km length of the Pan-American Highway with the aim of communicating our core values to the widest possible audience.
Our project aim is to turn around the public perception of electric vehicles as slow, unattractive and of limited range. So, is there a more perfect challenge than tackling the longest road on the planet in our electric supercar?
From Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay, to the world’s southernmost city, Ushuaia, we will become the first electric car to travel the full 26,000km of the Pan American Highway!
