Driving 3,000 Miles for $13

February 17, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

“This open-topped beauty is the Wind Explorer, a German-made electric car that’s just driven across Australia.

And it only used around $13 of electricity on its 18-day trip.

It’s powered by two methods—a motor running on an internal battery that can be charged by the mains supply or a portable wind turbine, or, er, dragged along by kites.”
