Recharging...a Car

I suppose an electric vehicle (EV) is not alien to most people but seeing one, being recharged in a neighborhood, is something new to me. This is taken in Norway, where electric car owner gets incentives like tax and toll exemptions, free parking and use of bus lane.

(28/08/07: I've been informed that Kewet Buddy, the one in the picture, is legally classified as a "four-wheel motorcycle" in Norway and thus does not get the incentives enjoyed by electric cars like Think, hence the recent demonstration, video news clip.)
