“If a standard electric car can make a world tour, every single person is able to use it to go shopping”
250 € : this is the average cost of the electricity to make this world tour.
More than 250 charges at local people’s homes : every day, the crew will have to convince local population to share their outlets.
No carbon emission due to the vehicle : The C-Zero (Citroen / PSA vehicle used for the world tour) will emit neither carbon nor any polluting particle. Carbon emission only depends on the way to produce electricity.
25,000 km : this is the distance traveled with only 250€ of electricity
17 countries : in some of them English language will be enough to communicate, but in most of them sign language will be mainly used to find outlets!
The crew is made up of Xavier and Antonin, two young engineers convinced by the electric mobility. This ambitious project aims to prove that this new mean of transport is an opportunity in the future and to contribute to its fast expansion.Xavier Degon, 27, was graduated from the Ecole Centrale Paris in 2009 and then joined EDF (State owned French Electricity Provider Company).
