90-mile range, plus EV charging points are few and far between in Siberia.

EVs make natural rally cars, just so long as you can find a place to charge them. Nissan

Front of cabin is stock, bar rubber floor mats. Nissan
Rear seats removed, new battery cover installed, 32kg saved. Nissan
LED lights to pierce the Mongolian night, like Cardigan's lancers. Nissan
Wheels, tyres, and a jacked up suspension are the most obvious changes.
This is a 7000 km race you win just by completing it! It is in Siberia so I imagine the colds temperatures aren't going to help keep in the battery charged if you want heat in the cabin lol
