Move About moves into Copenhagen with electric cars

Move About has launched in Denmark, with 8 Think City 2-seater cars available from a car pool located in central Copenhagen
Subscription-based electric car scheme Move About has been launched in Denmark, with 8 Think City 2-seater cars available from a car pool located in central Copenhagen, writes the Danish Energy Association in its daily newsletter. The number of cars is expected to double by the first quarter of 2010, with the concept subsequently being rolled out to other Danish cities.
 
Managing director of Move About in Denmark, Bendt Iversen, explains the idea: "The whole concept is about being as close to the city's inhabitants as possible. People are seriously considering whether to buy a car or simply be a subscriber to our scheme. Our goal is that by 2015 Copenhageners will only need to go 500 metres at most to get into a car from Move About. It should be fun, easy and environmentally friendly."
 
The motor for Move About's scheme is its website, where people can subscribe for a flat fee of DKK 100 per month. They can then book the use of a Think City electric car for a weekend, a day, or even an hour. Subscribers are given an electronic keycard which unlocks the car. A practical as well as economical benefit of Move About's service is that parking in all Copenhagen municipal car parks is free, although time limits for parking still apply.
 
Think City is a 2-seater city car with a top speed of 100 kph (62 mph) and a range-per-charge of 170 kilometres in summer conditions, i.e. without using the electric heater. Like all modern cars it is equipped with ABS brakes and airbags.
