We depart on the 4th of November 2022 and expect to be on the road for about one year.

The purpose of this expedition is:

map 4x4electric

Driving 100% electric


We will travel all-electric, charging the car directly with solar panels we take with us. During our expedition we will share our experiences, so that we can all learn what is possible traveling long distance all-electric.


Visiting sustainable 


Along the way, we will visit all kinds of sustainable initiatives to learn from. We will share our insights about how sustainability can be implemented in our daily lives. That way we hope to inspire you to do the same.


Collecting data while


With the data dashboard implemented, which collects data out of the expedition car, analysis will be made for new useful insights. What parameters have an impact on range and battery health? And what parameters affect each other?
