Plug In Adventures Power through Georgia

As Team Plug In Adventures make their way across the west of Kazakhstan, Chris, Panda and Hamish got us up to speed with their EV adventure through Georgia.

After spending 4 hours crossing the border, the team made it safely into Georgia, picking up their first charge in the country on mains electric at their hotel.

“This whole journey has just been incredible… I’m just loving every minute of this journey so far.”

The next day, team Plug In Adventures reached the Georgian capital of Tbilisi and their network of free to use fast chargers where they took a couple of days out to explore what the city has to offer.

Meanwhile, after a close inspection of the vehicle, the locals of Tbilisi found the LEAF AT-EV to be in purr-fact condition, and gave Chris and the team the paw-print of approval to continue on their journey through the rest of the country.

“This whole journey has just been incredible,” said Chris speaking from Tbilisi.

“We’ve had the euphoria of being on the road meeting all the rally teams and catching up with people and sharing stories and that’s just been incredible. To those days where the driving is long, the hills are just steep as anything. You are driving at slow speed and you just want the day to end, and those days you just feel so down but that’s why we are doing this: to have an incredible journey and to prove that electric vehicles can keep up with petrol cars. I’m just loving every minute of this journey so far.”
