Back in January, the Moto Mundo duo – Nina Rasmussen and Hjalte Tin – stopped by the Detroit Auto Show to share their tale of driving from Europe to China and then across the U.S. before heading back to Europe to complete the last leg of their ten-month trek in an electric vehicle. The Danish writers and adventurers took a converted electric Nissan Qashqai on this epic, 18,641-mile journey. On May 7, 2011, Nina and Hjalte returned to Copenhagen, Denmark, to complete their world tour.

How far can an electric car go? All the way around the world, it turns out. That's the trip that two converted all-electric Nissan Qashqais are on, in the care of Danish writers and adventurers Nina Rasmussen and Hjalte Tin. The duo (and their support team) left Denmark last June, heading west. They stopped at the EXPO 2010 in Shanghai and will also be making an appearance at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show.
