Scottish Couple to Drive EV from North Pole to South Pole

A married couple in Aberdeen plans to travel in an electric vehicle from the North Pole to the South Pole, an expedition they had been preparing for over the years. In the course of the week, the couple, Julie and Chris Ramsey, are going to embark on a 17,000-mile (27,000-kilometer) journey from the north magnetic pole (Arctic) through the United States and finally to the south magnetic pole (Antarctica). The couple  plan to use wind and solar energy to power their car for the majority of the journey. Their route will take them through Latin American nations.

Given that they will be moving from one season to another, the pair will travel over the course of 10 difficult months. They will profit from solar energy in the Arctic during summer times, while Antarctica’s excursion season begins in December, and there is continuous sunshine at that time, which supports their solar efforts.

They acknowledge that many things, their relationship included, may be tested by the adventure. And being Aberdeen locals, they are going to bring along provisions such as simple buttery rolls or rowies, which are a popular local delicacy, to help them remain strong throughout the journey.

In response to the frequently asked question of how they will charge the electric car in the arctic regions, which lack energy supply, Julie Ramsey responded that the presence of wind energy facilities and the complete double-solar panels fitted on their gadgets, which would be towed together, would utilize the renewable power sources — the sun and wind — to supply power to the car. Considering that it was being done for the first time, it was difficult, innovative and novel, she said.

The vehicle has been equipped with sizable tires in an effort to handle rough topography. Additionally, the car has certain modern conveniences, like a coffee maker in the trunk. The Ramseys can film their trip, thanks to a drone launcher that is also present.

According to Ramsey, they have taken the appropriate steps and are collaborating with the appropriate parties, and they are certain they will succeed. Their zeal and conviction, as well as the car’s capability, are their driving forces. After completing the Mongol Rally in 2017, Ramsey feels certain that they can complete this as well.

However, they acknowledged that the journey was not going to be simple and that they would encounter difficulties. But that’s what an adventure is all about, they said.

This challenge taken on by this United Kingdom couple is bound to to draw attention to electric vehicles and their capabilities in different climate conditions, so different manufacturers such as NIO Inc. (NYSE: NIO) could indirectly benefit from the resultant awareness.
