We made it!!! 🍾🍾🍾
We arrived in Tarifa at 23:02 on 12 June 2017 , 58 minutes ahead of target and 3 days 23 hours and 2 minutes after leaving Nordkapp, thus setting an unprecedented world record in an electric car.
What an adventure. The trip of a lifetime. 6279 kilometers, through 7 countries in 95 hours and 2 minutes, without using one single drop of gasoline.
Girls-only world record
“4 girls. 4 days. 0 emissions” is the first ever girls-only world record in an electric car. The record consists in crossing Europe from Nordkapp (Norway) to Tarifa (Spain) in less than 4 days. 100% electric. The record has been organized by a young luxembourghish start-up: The Car’tell and carried out in a TESLA Model S P85+. The team was composed of Marie Guerre, Sascha Bloemhoff, Paule Kiénert and Sandra Heinisch (who could not participate due to medical reasons) (more on Team 4.4.0).
Starting at precisely midnight on 9th June in Nordkapp, Norway, the girls drove non-stop down to Tarifa in Spain where they arrived at 23:02 on 12th June, 58 minutes ahead of the deadline set for midnight. The total distance covered was 6279 kilometers crossing 7 countries (Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Luxembourg, France and Spain), the longest distance ever performed in under 4 days in an electric car. In total they stopped 35 times to recharge the batteries of their TESLA for a total charging time below 19 hours. They saved over 1 ton of CO2 compared to the same trip in a regular petrol-powered car. This is equivalent to the CO2 absorption power of 50 trees over 1 year.
