Expedition update

Here you can see where we are, with 3 days delay. During the entire expedition, we gather data from the expedition car. Every day new data is uploaded on our website for you to see. In addition, new parameters will be added in the coming months.

We do this so that we can all learn more about electric driving long distance. What affects the range and battery health of an electric car?

A Sustainable Expedition

It is our goal to drive from the Netherlands to South Africa and back with a regular electric car that we charge with portable solar panels
We will be completely self-sufficient; sleeping in a rooftop tent, cook electric and shower with self-purified water by the car.

A new way to travel sustainable long-distance to places where there are no charging stations. 

While doing so we built a sustainable community. As we all agree sustainability is important, we want to share the learnings of other sustainable people and initiatives along the route. 

Why? To inspire each other to take the next step in implement sustainability in daily life and business.

Roadmap of our green expeditions

arrow 4x4electric


Until the 19th of September we are preparing the expedition. This includes the innovative charging technology, the car for the expedition, the route along sustainable initiatives, and more.


Pre Expedition

From September 20th to October 16th we make a tour through the Netherlands to test the charging technology, visit sustainable initiatives and meet you.


Africa Expedition

On the 4th of November we depart for Africa. We will start at Geelen Counterflow in Haelen, our main partner. We expect to be on the road for about one year.


Future Phase

Once we are back home, a new phase will start. A phase in which we will share our learnings and help others to implement sustainability where we can.

Being able to shower after a long hot day is such a big present. The way I value water is increased a lot since we are in Africa. We are able to take ~60 liters with us, enough for a couple of days. We filter it so we can drink it, we never buy plastic water bottles!😊

@4x4electricnl Excellent going team @4x4electricnl ! Looking forward to welcoming you to Cape Town in the not too distant future so that we can check out the Skoda. It might make for an ideal SUV to include in our future fleet of EVs as we drive a gender-equitable transport future.
