January, 20th 2011: The E-MOBILITY shop opened it's doors to HafenCity Hamburg - and the rest of the world providing concepts and products around renewable energy and urban electric mobility.
Highlight provided by the "Elektro Fahrzeug Institut" was the TESLA Roadster. A test drive with the world's first 100% electric sports car feels like beeing slingshot into the future with speed of light. It's a pure lifestyle product speeding up from 0 to 100 km/h in 3,8 seconds - with zero emissions. The DeLorean with it's Flux Compensator from the movie "Back To The Future" seems like an old mare compared to this vehicle.
As I had a chance for a short trial trip around the block, I would like to provide you an impression with some pictures and a movie. Here you can see some pictures (please use the fullscreen button to see images in high resolution):
Viewing the following movie is recommended switched to HD or FullHD (720p or 1080p) and fullscreen depending on your available bandwidth and video equipment:
Clicking the following image starts the movie directly in fullscreen view, but it may not work on all browsers/platforms.
(Images and movie sequences were taken using the Panasonic Lumix GH2 and an Voigtlaender Nokton 25/0.95).
