Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
The French postal service (La Poste) is testing electric cars. The tests are starting in Brest and Rennes in Brittany with 22 cars. Postmen and post women get a short training of 15 minutes, (they need to get used to the 2 pedals and not to change gears!). The staff who have already tried the cars are amazed how quiet they are.
At the moment, an electric car can only do about 50 km, so it can’t be used in rural areas.
Each car will save 3 tons of CO2 per year and per car.
Other French companies have followed this environmental friendly idea and have ordered altogether 50 000 cars for the future.
Who knows? We will all be driving an electric car soon!
