Who Needs EV Fast Chargers When We Have Dutch Ingenuity? [Video]
Well, the Dutch have come to the rescue. While it has been clear for years that they love everything 'green', they have embraced the trend better than any other western-European nation. Now, they have devised a clever way of charging an electric car, in this case a Nissan Leaf, with 73Km- (45.6 miles-) worth of electricity in just 10 minutes.
While it’s not something we’d recommend, they have managed this incredible feat by burning fossil fuel, a detail which renders the whole exercise pointless, not entirely, however. They pull the Nissan Leaf behind a truck, and thanks to the car’s regenerative braking system, the battery is charged extremely quickly, to the aforementioned mileage. If they had pulled the car behind a fast Dodge Charger, the whole thing would have been even funnier - sadly, they didn't.
