NEWS & LAND

The electric road-trip through New-Zealand

About the project

NEWS&LAND's aim is to promote the next generation of road trips : silent, non-polluting, and opening a new dimension for the electric car and tourism. Classic urban cars being generally favored for long distances, we wish to showcase the full spectrum of possibilities electric vehicles have to offer, by going on a 7-months adventure around beautiful New Zealand, driving only electric. The project will be brought to life through a web-series documentary focusing on the clean energy transition. 


With this project, we aim to raise awareness about a new sustainable society, from childhood and adulthood. That's why we want students to be involved in that project. The idea is to connect French students from high school with New Zealander students with the same school level, and to make them exchange about the issue of energetic transition. The purpose is to encourage them to write in an other language (english for french students and french for new zealander students), to encourage students to try out different and new forms of expression (blogs, social media - writing, filming, listening etc) and to discover a culture from the other side of the globe but most over to raise the children’s awareness about the environmental issues.


JOIN THE ADVENTURE

 

 

OUR TASK ?
To show that we are able to travel long distances, through wild landscapes without using fossil energies.


 

WHY ?
We would like to support and help make electric vehicles more popular by trying out its potential in different contexts and weathers. We want to promote a new, silent and clean road-trip !

 

 

A CLEAN AND LOCAL ENERGY
80% of New Zealand’s electric energy comes from sustainable sources (57% is hydraulic, 35% is geothermic, 5% comes from wind energy and 3% is produced by cogeneration plants). Buying an electric vehicle in New Zealand would mean using a clean and local energy to get around.

A MEAN OF TRANSPORTATION THAT FITS TO THE ENVIRONEMENT
New Zealand is famous for its landscapes devoid of any sort of urbanisation. Now, let’s not ruin the pleasure with the engine’s noise ! Electric vehicles are entirely silent which ensures a full immersive experience.
