Round-the-world Electric Odyssey trip reaches the Rockies

An attempt by two French engineers to drive a Citroen C-Zero battery-electric vehicle around the world hasn’t been lost in translation… yet.

Xavier Degon and Antonin Guy, who started what they call the Electric Odyssey in Strasbourg, France in February, reached the Rockies this month, with plans to continue on to Asia after reaching the U.S. West Coast.

The two are planning for the eight-month trip to cover 17 countries, about 15,000 miles and about 250 Euros ($327 U.S. at today’s exchange rates) in electricity consumption. The two drivers are traveling in 70-mile increments, relying on supporters – in addition to restaurants, gas stations and other retailers – for recharges, according to Wired. The reason? To “promote the image of the electric vehicles” while sharing information and energy with people around the world, according to the Electric Odyssey website.
