ZERO EMISSIONS RACE 2010:
IN 80 DAYS AROUND THE WORLD WITH RENEWABLE ENERGIES

Jules Verne’s dream to go around the world in 80 days became a reality a long time ago, but is it possible to make a tour around the world in 80 days with emission-free vehicles? Four Teams from three continents have taken up the challenge. On 16 August 2010 they have started with their electric vehicles on the longest and greenest race of all time: the ZERO Race.

THE COMPETITION OF FUTURE VEHICLES

The ZERO EMISSIONS RACE is not a race about speed. It is a race to make the planet greener and a better place to live for future generations. This is a race to make small, efficient vehicles popular. The team with the smartest, most efficient, most reliable, most usable and most popular concept will be the winner

A GREEN EVENT

The aim of the ZERO Race is to be a truly zero emissions event. See how we want to achieve that 




RENEWABLE ENERGIES



All ZERO Race cars are powered by clean, renewable energies. See how this works 




PROTECT BIODIVERSITY



Climate Change is a big threat for the biodiversity on our planet. But electric cars and renewable energies could make a difference! We want to raise awareness for different species which are threatened by climate change.
