The traveler drove from Poland to Japan by electric car Nissan Leaf
Polar explorer Marek Kaminsky, the first and only person in the world to conquer both poles for one year, drove a 16,000-kilometer electric car to Nissan Leaf. The traveler’s route ran from Poland to Japan via Russia.
The starting point of the trip was the Polish city of Zakopane. Then Kaminsky traveled through eight countries and two continents, breaking through Lithuania, Belarus, Russia, Mongolia, China and South Korea. The finish of the car took place in Tokyo. The whole trip took 60 days.
His trip Kaminsky wanted to show that you can go on long trips even an electric car. Including, such machines are able to visit the remotest corners of the world: according to Kaminsky, problems with recharging have always been solved even “far from civilization with minimal infrastructure.”
With him, he had a set of various cables and chargers that allow you to “charge” the network with current values from six to 25 amps. At the maximum value, the battery can be charged in four to five hours.
Nissan Leaf new generation debuted in September last year. The hatchback is equipped with a 150-horsepower electric motor and lithium batteries with a capacity of 40 kilowatt-hours. The power reserve of the car reaches 378 kilometers. The full charge of the batteries, depending on the network capacity, is required from eight to 16 hours.
