The popular meteorologist took to Instagram to share a nearly two-minute long video of herself and her co-driver, Sam, becoming the first to test the Volkswagen ID4, an electric vehicle. In the clip, they went over the rattle test-track and it was clear from Ginger's strained speech that the car was rattling and rolling around. They then went over a surface which mirrored potholes found in cities and towns across the nation.

She explained: "This morning we are at @volkswagen's Chattanooga facility where I'll be first to drive the first American made ID4 – it's an EV made at the world's first LEED Platinum Certified auto plant.

In the show, the family of four hit the road along with other National Geographic explorers and writers "to see how we can fix our forests," and going out "in search of solutions."

The video proves Ginger's boys are just like their mom, and sees them digging up soil, zip-lining, and learning all about how we can improve our land.
