Venturi Global Challenges

Beyond the limits

Since 2009, Venturi has been pushing the human and technological limits of electric mobility with the Venturi Global Challenges. Inspired by the great automobile expeditions of the last century, these Missions aim to demonstrate the efficiency and reliability of electric vehicles.

Incredible speeds, extreme weather, tough terrain in the remotest corners of the planet… Venturi vehicles are tested in extraordinary conditions, and are making an indelible mark on our era with every new world record they set.
