Our somewhat unconventional plan is to drive by night and sleep by day. Attached to the EQC’s tow hitch is our base camp, a Mink Camper. Weighing less than 500 kilos, this miniature caravan is little more than a bed on wheels. We park where possible, wherever we fancy, and the camper’s blackout blinds mean that we can sleep during the day and drive at night, thereby avoiding the hordes of tourists here at this time of year.
With or without a camper attached, the EQC driver won’t experience range anxiety in Iceland. The state-of-the-art navigation system provides up-to-date information on charging stations and displays destinations that are in range, so we can relax and enjoy our locally emission-free journey. Furthermore, the speed limit of 90 kilometres per hour ensures that we savour every metre of our journey with the EQC.
