Electric ice car running in Antarctica

  There are scientific expedition personnel from 30 different countries in Antarctica. Some of them are from China, some are from the United States, and some are from the United Kingdom, and so on. Since Antarctica is “uninhabited”, with an average of only 0.00008 people per square kilometer, Antarctica can be said to be the continent least affected by air pollution. Here, scientists can collect the purest air data.
  In order to reduce the pollution of Antarctic air by human activities, scientific research researchers have to reduce their own long journeys (because travel vehicles often have diesel or gasoline engines). However, this situation is likely to become history.
  In 2019, Monaco-based Venturi Motor Company launched an all-terrain electric vehicle dedicated to extreme ice and snow conditions, the Venturi Antarctic Ice Car, which can operate in an environment of minus tens of degrees Celsius. Its biggest highlight is that it is purely electric, which also means that it is a zero-emission vehicle, which can provide great convenience for the travel of scientific researchers.
  The Venturi Antarctic is a 6-wheel drive tracked vehicle with an orange appearance that can operate normally at -50°C. Due to the characteristics of the tracked vehicle, the Venturi Antarctic can adapt to most terrains and can reach a speed of 20 kilometers per hour. Although this speed is far less than other gasoline vehicles currently used in Antarctica, it is far faster than other non-polluting travel methods such as skiing and walking.
  The Venturi Antarctica can not only carry 3 people, but also some luggage and equipment. It has a cruising range of 45 kilometers. Although this may not seem far away, it is enough to carry scientific research personnel deeper into Antarctica for investigation, or to visit nearby Antarctic scientific research stations belonging to other countries.
  Currently. The Venturi Antarctic has been tested and is being promoted. In the future, we may see some Antarctic scientific expeditioners traveling in “small orange cars” in some media, or visiting other scientific expedition institutes.
