Electric Auto Association Chairperson, Ron Freund, writes about his WAVE 2015 European electric car rally.
"The parade of EVs included a Nissan e-NV200 van and LEAFs, several BMW i3, VW e-Golf and E-Up!, Opel Ampera (the European Chevy Volt), Th!nk ‘City’, Twike (3-wheel), Renault Zoe, a rare BYD e-6, Tesla Roadsters and Model S, along with Zero SR motorcycles, Kia Soul EV, handbuilt e-motorcycles, several converted vehicles (including a VW Vanagen with 106 kWh of lithium polymer cells, a Mazda RX-7 with Li-Po cells, and an Audi A8), Corbin Sparrow, Volvo C-30, MB B-class plus several e-bikes. The “range extended” BEVs (such as the i3 REx and the Opel Ampera) had their gas tanks drained and then purposely run dry, then their filler flap was sealed with tamper-proof tape."
