Electric to the World Sustainable Energy Days!


Just like previous years, Hansa Green Tour will organize a Winter Edition, driving with 100% electric cars from the Netherlands to Austria. 1000 kilometers in 1 day with electric cars to this great event where we will present our delegation and vehicles and share our latest insights in E-Mobility at the Smart E-Mobility Conference. We’ve made our statement to strongly support E-Mobility several times now. Let’s raise the bar again!

Electric Hansa CANNONBALL RUN to Austria!

Wednesday 27 February: Canonball Run to Austria

Day 1: No rules…Who drives fastest from start to finish from the Netherlands to Austria?!

7 teams drive with the latest long range electric cars from the Netherlands to Austria. Participating cars are Tesla Model X and Model 3, Hyundai Kona, Kia E-Niro, Jaguar I-Pace, and Opel Ampera E.

Each team consists of 2 people per car. Wednesday 27 February – Friday 1. March each car can be followed real-time online at our event page www.hansa-cannonball.com and on our twitter account. Each team will report what route they choose, where they are charging, how fast the cars are really charging and what strategy they have: drive fast and charge several times? Or drive slowly and try to avoid unnecessary charging stop(s) and beat the competition by driving the most efficient way? The team that arrives first in Austria wins the trophy for fastest EV driver. The team that arrives fastest with the lowest kWh consumption wins the trophee for smartest and most efficient driver!

Thursday 28 February: Glacier Road to the James Bond Experience Center at 3040 meter altitude

Day 2: Glacier Road, the highest panoramic road in Europe, snow chains obligatory!

This second day we take on the challenge of the Glacier Road and drive with our electric vehicles to the highest point in Europe. This is the location where the spectacular James Bond movie ‘Spectre’ is recorded. Who manages to bring his EV all the way to the top?! How much % battery capacity does it take the participants to drive to the top? And down again, what car can recover the highest % battery capacity by regeneration driving downhill?  Once back in the village all cars will be charged and then we take the cable car lift to the James Bond Experience Center at 3040 meters altitude. Did you know that Jaguar Land Rover build special electric vehicles for the James Bond movie? Let’s find out more at 3040 meters altitude! After lunch at the most spectacular location in Europe part 2 of our electric Canonball Run starts: who will be the fastest to drive to the E-Mobility specialists at the Kaiserhof Hotel in Salzburg?
