EV 2016 Huskvarna, May 21-23

Day 1: The Grenå - Varberg boat trip

The ferry in Grenå

We drove with my black Zoe model Q210.

The first charging point on the Danish motorway to Grenå

It was not too difficult finding the charging points in Sweden. One of the providers we found was Clever, who is also in Denmark. We used the same RFDI card as in Denmark.

Just beside one of the charging points we saw this American fossil car. A big contrast!

We drove to the Hills above Huskvarna. What a view!

The EV participants from Sweden and Denmark arrived already on Day 1.

Did someone say something funny?
