This French Start Up Has A Solution To Range Anxiety

  This French Start Up Has A Solution To Range Anxiety A French startup called EP Tender has a new solution to a relatively new problem. This smart startup is offering a range extending trailer to haul behind your electric car. It plans to roll out along traditional holiday travel routes with a fleet of 60 kWh battery trailers. The Renault Zoe, an inexpensive city electric popular in Europe, will get another 560-ish kilometres of range on top of its standard 190 kilometres with the EP Tender attached. Each trailer rental will cost no more than $US37 ($56). European travel destinations are traditionally much closer to home, as 760 kilometres is potentially several countries away, depending on where you start.
