From the Netherlands to Sydney on electric car

A Dutchman Wiebe Wakker has claimed the world’s longest electric car journey after driving almost 60,000 miles from the Netherlands to Sydney.

Wiebe Wakker has arrived in Sydney, after driving there in an electric car from Amsterdam over the course of almost three years.

Mr Wakker says he travelled 60,000 miles (95,000 km) across 33 countries “without money”, relying on offers from volunteers for meals, accommodation and charging points.

He wanted to demonstrate the capacity and reliability of electric cars, as they are a good way of tackling global warming.
