I recently made the conversion to carbon free transportation - solar panels and full electric car. I got a Chevy Spark - an amazing car! Not just environmentally friendly, but also 0-60 in 7.5 seconds!
One nice discovery is how well folding bike pairs with electric cars. The biggest downside of electric cars is range anxiety - the fear of being stuck without enough battery left to get home. So I plan my routes carefully and basically just use mine on my commute and other "known"routes. As a safety/backup, though, I carry my Brompton in the trunk also. Despite the teeny tiny trunk of the Spark, the Brompton fits in nicely. Having it there gives me some flexibility when I need to plug in away from home. I can ride to a cafe, or to a bus stop, or even just do a fun ride while waiting for the charge. This pairing takes away a big chunk of my anxiety about running out of charge. Like most insurance plans, I hope I never have to use it, but it's there if I do. I'm really thrilled about this.
I've been a long time folding bike rider, but this is a use-case I've not thought of or heard brought up before. Maybe we'll see more of this application!
