TO ACHIEVE

1 WORLD FIRST

THE JOURNEY BEGINS

On September 8th, 2023, Lexie Alford, known to millions as @LexieLimitless, began an epic, pioneering road trip in the New All-Electric Ford Explorer®.

Her goal: to be the first person to circumnavigate the globe in an electric vehicle. A journey inspired by the trailblazing adventurer, Aloha Wanderwell.

One hundred years ago, Aloha became the first woman to drive around the world. And she did it in a Ford Model-T. Expedition driver, translator and filmmaker, Aloha started her journey when she was just 16. Her story is just as incredible as her achievement.

Like Aloha, Lexie Limitless set off and will finish her journey in Nice, France. She will visit six continents and cover vast distances. On the way she'll meet other trailblazers, visit fascinating places — and, we hope, find enough chargers along the way!

FOLLOW THE JOURNEY

Much has changed since Aloha’s day. Our modern-day explorer can go online, find information, and share experiences at the tap of a finger.

But this is no driving holiday. This is a world-first, designed to push the limits of an electric vehicle. In many ways, a journey into the unknown. There will be highs and lows for sure. But for an experienced traveller like Lexie, it's all part of the challenge.

VISTING THE WEATHER FACTORY

Lexie visited our state-of-the-art Environmental Test Centre, also known as, the Weather Factory. From Arctic cold to desert heat and tropical humidity, she discovered how we test Explorer to the extreme. Reassuring, as soon they'll be crossing continents together.

MEETING TEAM EXPLORER
 

For Lexie, the New All-Electric Explorer is going to be home for the months ahead. So, to get to know it better, she went to meet the people behind the vehicle, discovered the advanced technology used in its design, and made some feature suggestions of her own.
