The Dakar is a heavy rally and requires a lot. Tim Coronel, in his quest to improve, was first looking into making the buggy lighter – as many did. Until he met up with Aalbers Industries, who gave him into consideration to go full-electric. Knowledge to create this kind of rally car is obtained by Novolectric and All Green Vehicles. Also TU professor Wubbo Ockels is participating in this initiative. Doing so, they are looking into equipping the service trucks with solar panels.

In 2012 Tim is racing with Pro Dakar again. The Dakar organisation ASO is looking into the electric project with interest as this can be an incentive to make the rally greener. Tim Coronel at least is adding a new dimension to the event, and to the sport.
