After 4 years of planning, husband and wife team Chris and Julie Ramsey, are about to embark on an epic 27,000 km (17,000 miles)  adventure over 10-months, in an attempt to become the first people to drive from the magnetic North Pole to the South Pole.

Julie and Chris will undertake the challenge in an all-electric Nissan Ariya, modified by Arctic Trucks.

Earlier this month, Chris said, “One of the things that underpins all the adventures we do is that we take a standard production EV and aim to make minimal changes to clearly demonstrate its real, everyday capabilities, regardless of where you are driving it. Our Nissan Ariya is no different as the vehicle’s drivetrain and battery has remained factory standard, demonstrating just how capable and versatile the production Ariya is. We’ve modified the suspension and widened the wheel arches so we can benefit from the stable platform and support of the 39-inch BF Goodrich tyres. I’m incredibly excited to get behind the wheel of what was already a brilliant vehicle, but now feels equipped to take on the ends of the earth in style!”
