Around 1,000 electric cars took part, on a circular tour starting and finishing in Munich via Basel, Luxembourg, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Bremen, Berlin, Dresden, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest and Vienna. The total distance was 4200km at an impressive daily average of 450km. Taking part were not just standard production cars or hybrids but specialist conversions such as the Kreisel Electric Porsche Panamera 4S which boast a 300kmh top speed and 450km range.
