Mission 03 — Antarctica of the “Venturi Global Challenges” consists of creating a zero-emission vehicle capable of functioning under the extreme weather conditions of the Antarctic.
The “Venturi Antarctica” will thus be tested at the International Princess Elisabeth Station – the 1st station in the Antarctic to be entirely powered by renewable energies.
The Antarctica has wheel-mounted caterpillar tracks, 2x60kW power and weighs in at around 2 tonnes. Designed to operate in the extreme conditions of Antarctica.
It can carry three people, as well as luggage and equipment. It has a range of approximately 45 km and a speed of 20 km/h in realistic operating conditions.
