9 Down, 1 To Go — A Personal Tale Of 7 Years With Electric Cars https://t.co/DkIgMVUtbV

The car was actually quite nice. In the summer of 2011, I was starting a business selling BionX e-bike kits and I was invited to a meeting in Copenhagen to discuss urban mobility.

The onboard system, called OSCar, seemed easy to use, and all in all the car was very practical. Performance was fine, but what I heard later on was that the range was quite poor, hence the need for battery swapping. Another drawback was the weight distribution.
