Scottish adventurers Chris and Julie Ramsey successfully completed the historic "Pole To Pole EV" expedition, covering 17,000 miles from the 1823 Magnetic North Pole to the South Pole using a modified Nissan Ariya e-4ORCE electric vehicle.

The nine-month journey marked the first-ever drive from the North to the South Pole in an electric car. The vehicle, enhanced by Icelandic specialist Arctic Trucks, featured larger tires, ice-friendly gear, and body reinforcement.

Despite a reduced range of 150 to 200 miles in challenging polar conditions, the Ramseys utilized innovative methods, such as creating snow walls and using wind and solar charging solutions.

The expedition aims to demonstrate the viability of electric vehicles in polar regions, replacing traditional diesel-powered expedition vehicles. The duo collaborated with EV charging solutions provider Enel X Way to install chargers in Central and South America, contributing to an extended electric Pan-American charging corridor.
