1,254 Electric Kilometers in a Day on the Dutch Highway

A team of intrepid dutch men decided to see how far they could go with a Nissan LEAF electric car over 24 hours by using public fast-charging stations. The video (below) is a very convincing argument in favor of increasing the number of these fast-charging stations; on most days they wouldn't even be needed, but on longer trips, it wouldn't be too inconvenient to stop and have a coffee while the car recharges. And that's why current technology... Soon batteries will have bigger ranges and withstand even faster charges when 'fat pipes' are available.
