South Africa will play host to the Electric Vehicle Road Trip Africa (EVRT Africa) for the first time in October 2019.

Earlier in June, Wheels24 reported that Generation.e, working with the Department of Transport and Gauteng Provincial Government, will be embarking on a unique road trip across the country – starting in Johannesburg and culminating in Cape Town.

Petrol heads and electric vehicle (EV) enthusiasts will get the chance to take 12 of the latest EVs on an epic adventure, tackling challenging environments and large distances to showcase the cars’ power and capabilities. 

To power the country’s journey towards sustainability, Generation.e will be installing approximately 30 electric vehicle charging points at hotels, petrol stations, and other sites suited for EV charging in each of the cities visited, such as Johannesburg, Bloemfontein, Port Elizabeth and Cape Town.

Generation.e Co-founder and CEO, Ben Pullen, says that after successful road trips across Europe and the Middle East, the company decided to bring this unique experience to Africa because expanding urban populations require innovative mobility solutions without increased carbon emissions - which are bad for the planet - and air pollutants that are harmful to human health.
