The annual WAVE electric car trophy is now complete, after participants drove for 10 Days, about 1900 km with 40 electric car teams having set off from near Vienna and finally finishing in Zurich, finishing on the 7th July.
Highlights from the final day of their epic journey across Europe included visiting The Umweltarena in Spreitenbach, Switzerland, where exhibits of science and sustainable technology can be seen alongside a test track complete with electric vehicles for visitors to try out.
Several towns en-route to Zurich welcomed drivers with an area to rest at before continuing on the final leg of their journey which meant crossing the lake to Zurich.
