On September 4th at 13:00 pm, eleven 100% EVs lined up at the Arc de Triomf in Barcelona to cross the finish line, the same place from where they embarked on their circumnavigation journey on 16th of June.
The biggest starting fleet of the 80edays around- the- world electric car rally (11 EVs) set up a new world record. The teams successfully completed the circumnavigation trip, and drove a total of 289.662 km together across Europe, North America, and Asia with 100% electric vehicles within 80 days, including the time for cross-continental transportation. At the finish line the teams were warmly welcomed and congratulated by Professor Gunter Pauli well known as “The Steve Jobs of Sustainability”. Plenty of challenges on the way of 80edays crews to world record, now beaten for the first time since the achievement of rally initiator Rafael de Mestre has been set in 2012, is behind. It was a great honor for 11 80edays teams to share their sustainable vibes in the remotest parts of the world rewriting the automotive history and proving that electric vehicles have already become an essential part of our lives.
