Somehow I had missed that big news. Pretty impressive I think.

It seems like Ewan McGregor's has a new travel show coming up. It looks like they may be driving the PanAm with these trucks (and with a support crew, with two Sprinter 4x4 and a Ford 6.2). And apparently even four(4) Harley LiveWire! Quite an odyssey.

The say anything about how they are re-charging the Rivian enroute? That van in your post seems to have a large expandable solar array on the roof.

They have posted multiple images on Instagram of the cars being plugged in various locations - hotels, gas stations and such. Not much details about how long it takes though, but given their fast pace I am guessing it's not too dramatic.
 
If they are truly continuing all the way up to Alaska without waiting for spring/summer, it will be interesting to see how the batteries fare in really cold temps.

Where will it air? YouTube, Netflix or Prime?

I read two books featuring Ewan McGregor on motorcycle trips and they were good reads. Looking forward to this.

So, this had me looking up the first two trips again: Long way round and Long way down. It looks like they are on Amazon Prime according to google, but they are't showing up anywhere when I search my Amazon Prime when I'm logged in. Am I missing something? Does anyone know if Long way up be available on Amazon Prime?
