'Round World Zero Emission Race Crosses Finish Line
After 80 days of travel time on the road and 28,000 kilometres through 16 countries and 150 city stopovers and press events, three electric vehicles of the inaugural ZERO EMISSIONS RACE have completed their journey around the world on the 24th of February 2011, at Palais des Nations at United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland.
Jules Verne’s dream to go around the world in 80 days became a reality a long time ago, and the Zero Emissions Race has now proven possible to make a tour around the world in 80 days with emission-free vehicles.
Louis Palmer, the organiser of this event, made headlines worldwide in 2008 with his “Solartaxi”, when he drove across 38 countries and covered more than 54,000 kilometers in 18 months in a car powered by solar energy. This time, with the Zero Emissions Race, Louis Palmer organised the longest and greenest race of all times. The event sets a new record for electric vehicles and it represents a milestone in the history of electric vehicles.
