World tour by electric car arrives in Vietnam

Two young French engineers who are attempting the first-ever around-the-world tour on an electric car have arrived in Vietnam.

On July 6, the two guests, Antonin Guy, 28, and Xavier Degon, 27, had a meeting with Vietnamese press to introduce their special journey.

Departing on February 11, 2012 from Strasbourg, the two engineers have to travel 25,000 km across 17 countries in eight months, using only 250 EUR (310 USD) worth of electricity, seven times cheaper than using gasoline.

The goals of the adventure are to promote the use of electric cars and to assure the world of the capabilities of electrically powered transport, particularly when the world faces so many environmental problems.
