Venturi Mission 03 Electric Antarctic Rover
Antarctica is one of the last places on Earth that hasn't been claimed by any country. The frozen continent's extreme climate makes it unforgiving to humans, and an agreement by the world's governments prevents anything but scientific research and exploration — any military or industrial activity is explicitly prohibited. But scientists still need to get around, and until now, tracked vehicles running on fossil fuels have been the norm. Enter Formula E team Venturi, who are working to change transportation on Antarctica with their Mission 03 electric rover. The Mission 03 runs on the same batteries used in Venturi's Formula E cars and can travel up to 27 miles fully loaded with three people and equipment at 12 MPH. The Mission 03 isn't as fast as Formula E cars, but with no carbon footprint, its perfect for one of the most scientifically important places on the planet.
