When i was in Europe last week we tested an electric car for the 1st time.
They have them for rent and they are powered by solar energy at least in Denmark/Sweden.We booked and picked up + payed via cell phone.Got a code and the location in the town center and just went there and drove with it, the car park had 6 or 7 cars at that particular spot.
It was quite awesome. Total silence and smoothness.
Nissan Leaf was our choice and ride .
The future is electric.
