With the historic electric vehicle trip now completed, there is much celebrating going on over at the Mission Africa website. The real message, though, seems to be where Chevrin sees plug-in vehicle technology going from here. He writes:
Interesting, no? You can experience a version of the trip yourself without dedicating 38 days to the project in a beautifully shot four-minute video below.
The welcome we received at the press conference held for our arrival at the University of Johannesburg was warm and uplifting, with the same real enthusiasm for electric technology. I'm probably repeating myself a bit, but it's a fact: Africa is the continent which shows the highest expectations and hope for this new kind of locomotion.
