I think here its either solar powered or made from "green" electricity. An electric company in the city I live in runs a fleet of these as rentals with charging stations popping up here and there. They have a solar charging station close to my school, and I think it's powered by normal electricity at this time of year to supplement the lack of sufficient sunlight.

Personally, I think electric cars are stupid. Hydrogen is the way to go as it's abundant and infinitely renewable. That battery replacement thing seems proprietary and would cost far too much to be practical in any way.
