As a supplement to Rick's Route 66 trip, thought I'd look up this oldie. I forgot to keep tracking these two intrepid Frenchmen after they left California. They evidently made it around the world in the C-Zero, and this is at a time when very few charging stations were in place.
Here's another writeup as they were passing through California:http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1074226_long-distance-electric-car-trip-two-french-guys-one-i-miev
Here is the link to their Facebook page, which shows a photo of their i-MiEV in the middle of a Chinese desert in their October 18, 2012, post:https://www.facebook.com/electric.odyssey/
I have difficulty navigating Facebook and using Google Translate on that website, so gave up digging any further. Now they're doing it on electric motorcycles?
Just continues to show that really long-distance travel is possible in an i-MiEV!
