Spanish electric car plan

Post by Erik »

Short article in the Guardian on the latest electric vehicle developments/proposals in Spain:

Madrid reverses the chargers with electric car plan

Charge your electric car from old telephone boxes and lamp-posts?
Free parking for electric cars in the city centers, and road tax reduced by 75%?

... and the mayor of Madrid predicted "that electric cars would eventually become obligatory in city centres".

Hmmm, I guess we gotta do something with all that excess power generated by wind turbines at night when we're asleep.
