#369 LEJOGEV Gareth and Zog take the challenge of driving from Land’s End to John O’Groats in an electric vehicle. Will the public recharging network, our carefully calculated strategy and the Hyundai Kona we are doing it in allow is to set a new record?

Approx average road speed (whilst running) of 54.12 mph
