Around the world

Electric Odyssey, the first electric car to be driven around the world, will stop by Reno in early April. The tour began in Strasbourg, France, in February. The car, a Citroen, is driven by two French drivers and is entirely electric.

The press release states, “The purpose of the Electric Odyssey is to promote the image of electric vehicles (EVs) to the public at large and to demonstrate that EVs are a practical option for everyday transportation needs. If a standard electric car can make a world tour, every single person is able to use it to go shopping.”
