The Nissan Ariya becomes the first electric vehicle to travel from the North Pole to the South Pole in 10 months, covering over 30,000 km with a married couple

Over 18,641 miles were driven by a husband and wife in the electric crossover.

Although range anxiety is mostly in the past, it’s still something to consider if you’re planning a lengthy vacation. But not many will go quite as far as Chris and Julie Ramsey do.

The husband and woman just got back from a ten-month journey that took them from the Magnetic North Pole to the South Pole. “This is the first time any car, let alone an EV, has completed such a journey,” the company said after the pair’s more than 18,641-mile (30,000-kilometer) trek in a Nissan Ariya.

The Ramseys started organizing the trip in 2017 after covering 6,214 miles (10,000 km) in a Nissan Leaf for the Mongol Rally, so it wasn’t exactly a stroll in the park. In addition to extensive preparation, the Ariya was modified to handle difficult terrain. The crossover was given a tough suspension and 39-inch BF Goodrich tires, which are hidden by enormous fender flares, as part of this endeavor.

Since Nissan stated that there were “no modifications to the powertrain or battery,” that is essentially the limit of the improvements. Having said that, the manufacturer revealed nothing about the difficulties associated with charging the car.

“As long as the site or building has electricity and a suitable plug socket, then we can plug in,” the Ramseys stated on Instagram, even if it meant using a remote restroom and extending a cord out the window. When they were away from civilization, the pair also used an extended wind turbine and solar panels.

“It’s unbelievable we’re here at the South Pole,” Chris remarked. It seems unreal, having been planned for so long. I’ve always been completely convinced in the incredible potential of electric cars, and I believed our Nissan Ariya could handle any challenge. That feeling was reflected by his wife, who called the trip “incredible.”
