Plug In Adventures go off-road in Azerbaijan

After electing to drive through the night, Chris Ramsey and Team Plug In Adventures arrived in Azerbaijan on day 21 of their Mongol Rally EV adventure, but with a maximum limit of 72hrs on taking right hand drive vehicles through the country, time was not on their side!

Their first charge was supplied by a local Nissan dealer in the city of Ganja, giving them the perfect opportunity to explore the city whilst the LEAF EV-AT took some well-earned time out.

After a whistle stop tour of Ganja, day 22 saw them arrive in the capital, Baku, where they took time to take in the local sites.

Chris and the team decided to test the limits of the AT-EV’s off-road capability on day 23 when they took to the roads of Alat in search of the mud volcanoes.

“It’s a bit of a tourist location,” Chris said, speaking from Alat, “but we came up here because it’s all off-road and there’s some really severe pot holes… and steep climbs so we thought that we’d put the AT-EV to the test. We made it up here no problem!”

He really wasn’t kidding about the potholes!

Chris continues to be enthusiastic about the capabilities of his LEAF as he progresses on his journey,

“The AT-EV has performed amazingly well and each day I grow more confident that it can handle anything that we throw at it.”

Team Plug In Adventures made it safely down the muddy hills. They boarded the cargo ship, Barda, and set sail for Aktau in Kazakhstan.
