Nissan Ariya EV Sets Off Towards The South Pole

Chris Ramsey and his wife Julie have set out on a historic trip to become the first people to go from the magnetic north pole to the south pole of Antarctica. The Ramsey family will have the aid of an unaltered Ariya that will travel with them for the whole of their 16,777-mile journey.

The duo is doing something no one has ever done before, and they're doing it in an electric car— a slightly modified Nissan Ariya.

Except from the installation of a suspension raise package and the enlargement of the wheel arches to accommodate 39-inch tires, the vehicle is practically stock. The expedition has planned their itinerary so that they may use conventional power sources, but there may be exceptions.

Thus, the Nissan Ariya will be towing a new renewable energy unit, which consists of a wind turbine that can be expanded and foldable solar panels. Four years of planning and preparation went into the Pole to Pole journey, which Chris was eager to begin. He and his wife, Julie, have taken numerous EV journeys before, but this one is the biggest and most exciting yet.
