Venturi Challenge reaches Russia
June 24, 2010 § Leave a comment
Promotional long-distance reliability runs are two-a-penny, but this one’s a bit more oddball than most: Venturi, in its guise as an aftermarket EV converter, has been sending an electric Citroen Berlingo from Shanghai to Paris. The van – as supplied to the French Post Office – has just crossed the border from Kazakhstan into Russia, having travelled 6000-odd miles so far. More details on how they’re recharging the thing, and lots of local colour, at Venturi’s blog. Ta to Autoblog Green for alerting me to this one.
