From The Associated Press, Friday, December 31, 2010:

An eight-part BBC series that begins airing Saturday follows an electric car on its 16,000-mile trip from Alaska to Argentina.

In “Racing Green,” filmmaker Claudio van Planta follows postgraduate engineering students from England on their journey that began at Chena Hot Springs on July 1. They reached Argentina in 136 days.

Van Planta tells the Daily News-Miner the goal of the trip was to prove that electric cars have a place in the world today.
