Come join us as Rafael de Mestre stops in San Diego on his latest EV drive around the world.
You think you have experienced range anxiety? Try traveling around the world in an EV! It took 127 days for Rafael to drive it in a Tesla Roadster in 2012. In 2016 he did it again in a Tesla Model S. Some of his accomplishments include:
🏆 Winning the first EV race around the world in a STANDARD all-electric vehicle
🏆 Being the first man to drive ALONE around the world in an electric car
🏆 Making the FASTEST electric vehicle circumnavigation around the world ever (127 days)
🏆 Making the LONGEST drive in a standard electric car (17,574 miles).
Visit 80eDays.com for more of the project’s history and future plans.
This latest trip started in Hamburg, Germany. The Tesla Roadster was transported emission free over the Atlantic Ocean and the drive resumed from Ft. Lauderdale on July 4th. Along the way he has been stopping to meet with Tesla and EV groups and champion EV adoption.
