A demonstration of the potential of clean energy electric vehicles.
Welcome to DESERTED EV, the story of designing, constructing and riding an electric motorbike through the mountains and deserts of Argentina and Chile tracing the Dakar rally route. In 2014 we’ll be tackling this tough endurance race from the world of motorsport, but the challenge for us will be in just completing the course rather than racing the clock. Where’s the challenge in that? Well, we’re not taking any fuel…at least not in the conventional sense.
The bike is designed to charge from a portable solar array we’ll be taking with us. This leaves us free to complete the ride without petrol stops and emissions-free.
Take a look at the bike in action in the Sahara!
For each kilometre we cover we’ll be raising money for the World Wildlife Fund and Friends of the Earth. Both of which have been doing some amazing work for the environment.
