Driving round the world in two electric cars.

Starting in Denmark June 25, 2010 they will cross Scandinavia, Estonia, Russia, Mongolia, China, USA, Canada, Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Britain and Germany before returning to Denmark on May 1, 2011. The cars are Qashqai Electric developed and produced by AfutureEV in Denmark. The cars are 100% electric. The Moto Mundo World Electric Tour will be the ultimate test of electric car range, durability and performance. The World Electric Tour will encounter extreme conditions from endless Siberian highways, Gobi-desert heat, wild traffic in China and freezing US winter. Highlights of the tour will be joining the EXPO 2010 in Shanghai, the Motor Show in Detroit and competing in the Monte Carlo Rally for eletric cars.
