Nissan Embarks on Pole-to-Pole Adventure
Nissan is to set foot into the unknown and take the fully electric Nissan Ariya on an epic 17,000-mile (27,000km) trip from the South Pole to the North Pole. British adventurer Chris Ramsey will be at the helm to take the beefed-up electric SUV from Pole to Pole in 2023.
Nissan says that the Ariya will be the very first all-electric driving exhibition, across several continents. Ramsey will experience several continents with temperatures ranging from -30⁰C to 30⁰C.
Not only will this be the first for an electric vehicle, but it will be the first for any type of vehicle. Chris Ramsey's route will take him through multiple continents as he makes his way from the Arctic, through North, Central, and South America, before crossing into Antarctica – A total of 14 countries.
The epic journey is expected to depart in March 2023 and is tasked with negotiating some of the world's most challenging environments. Nissan is partnering with e-4ORCE to create the ultimate electric off-roader.
The adapted Nissan Ariya will be equipped with rugged equipment to assist them along the route. These upgrades will include e-4ORCE control technology, enhancing traction and stability across numerous surfaces as well as extreme tyres and suspension.
