SRZero EV Drives from Alaska to Argentina

A sporty British EV has just traveled from the Arctic Circle to the southern tip of South America. Inhabitat has more on the supercar's 70-day trip through 14 countries.

The undertaking, known as the Racing Green Endurance Challenge, was completed by the British team in their 400bhp twin-motor SRZero sportscar. The EV is fully electric and powered by lithium-ion batteries, giving the vehicle enough juice to drive more than 250 miles on a single charge. The car also boasts a top speed of 124 mph and can reach 60 mph in just seven seconds.

On completing the remarkable journey, which speaks volumes about the viability of EV technology, the team was pithy: "We were received in an absolutely fantastic style as we arrived into the world’s southernmost city, and the whole day from start to finish has been spectacular."

I would have thought the world's southernmost city would be in Antarctica, but seeing as there is no permanent population there, I guess this checks out.
