Caption: Electric car. A driver recharging her battery- powered Citroen AX car at a petrol station in La Rochelle, France. This is one of 50 Peugeot and Citroen cars employed in an assessment of the use of electric cars in an urban environment. The batteries of the cars may be charged overnight at home, then 'topped up' during the day at rapid charge points in several of the city's petrol stations. Drivers are allowed free parking in municipal car parks, all of which also have recharging points. The batteries store enough charge for about 75 kilometres of driving about town. This project was conducted in 1994-5.
