No gas, no hydrogen, no kind of burning resources is allowed. Only 100% electric cars are allowed to start. 80edays shows since 2012 that this is possible.

We will stop at places to meet EV fans of the country, will plant trees at dedicated locations and will have time to visit the cities where we meet and if you are fast you even can do some extra trips yourself.
