On the 17th of May there will be a rally with fully electric cars. No petrol, or any other range extender is allowed. Each pure electric vehicle has to have a range of at least 250km. This puts most currently available cars out of the rally, except for the Model S.
Is that fair? From the organization I understood that a 'normal' rally is around 200km in length, so it makes sense to measure up to this. I think this should be seen as a strong incentive for the other OEMs to step up their game and up the ante so they can participate in this rally next year.
If you are interested, the subscription (in Dutch) is still open, though the number of cars that can participate is limited to 100. In participating with this rally, you will also support a chartiy; JustDiggIt .
