e-Tour Europe Kicks Off in Munich, Germany

The German city of Munich saw the start of the eTour Europe this weekend, an electric romp across the mainland Europe showing the wide variety of electric cars on offer to the public along with celebrating the Europe-wide rapid charge network.

The eTour will last until the 26 May and will take in 9 capital cities in 9 days. In total the eTour will cover 4200km (2600 miles) with the furthers distance needing to be travelled in one day being 450km (280 miles) meaning that shorter range electric cars will have to use rapid and fast charging networks.

As a week tour goes, this one packs in the capital cities!

This isn’t the only long distance electric vehicle trip in Europe. In a little under two weeks Nikki will be setting off to make her way to Stuttgart, Germany which will see the start of the WAVE 2014.

See us talk to Louis Palmer the organiser behind the WAVE in Transport Evolved 198.

According to the eTour Europe website there are 14 teams taking part but many more owners of electric vehicles are due to meet them at each capital city stop. An aim of the eTour is to mobiles at least 1000 electric vehicles across Europe to meet them at some point.

A large variety of electric vehicles are expected to turn up from the more standard production electric cars like the Nissan LEAF, Renault ZOE and Mitsubishi iMiEV to more luxury cars such as the Tesla Model S or Roadster all the way to custom-made homebrew cars and even electrically assisted cycles like the Twike.

    OMG! There is a Fiat 126 in there – I used to have one of those, but not an electric one! It was great fun, but I would rather do a long trip in my C-Zero than a 126, even an ICE one.
