The Citroen C-Zero, being touted as a Mitsubishi i-MiEV cousin, drove into China earlier this month with much fanfare. Two French engineers – Xavier Degon and Antonin Guy – who started their eight month world trip in February this year, arrived in the Asian nation stamping the fact that electric vehicles can due a bit of endurance too.
The voyage christened Electric Odyssey started from Strasbourg, France and aimed at covering cover 17 countries, around 15,000 miles and 250 Euros in electricity consumption.
The team has already passed through Malaysia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam and is scheduled to arrive in Kazakhstan on August 10th.
The jaunt has been all electric and aims at drawing added attention towards solving environmental issues.
The two drivers look to convey the message that if they can drive round the world in an electric car, then why can’t use such vehicles be used for day-to-day journeys.
Various technical solutions have also been brought to the fore so as to improve vehicle related problems while on long drives.
The Citroen C-Zero had debuted inJapan in April 2010 and started its sales inEurope early last year.
