Holland man completes world’s longest electric car trip


SYDNEY: A Holland man has completed 95,000 kilometre trip on his electric car in Sydney to prove the viability of such vehicles in tackling climate change.

Wiebe Wakker drove his car nicknamed “The Blue Bandit” across 33 countries.

The trip that was funded by public donations took over three years from the Netherlands to Australia.

“I wanted to change people’s opinions and inspire people to start driving electric by showing the advantages of sustainable mobility,” Wakker said.

“If one man can drive to the other side of the world in an electric car, then EVs (electric vehicles) should definitely be viable for daily use,” he added.
