Solar-charged mopeds anyone?
The Yamaha electric mopeds parked underneath a series of small solar arrays in the picture above will soon be available for rent in front of the Kokokei JR Station in Tajimi Citi-Gifu Prefecture in Japan.
Electric mopeds and bicycles for rent will also be available at additional locations throughout Tajimi Citi.
We don’t know of any in the U.S. yet — though it’s possible we’ve missed one, or more, as they’ve gone up. If we have, and you know of one, please let us know, and we’ll publish a story on it :-) — and add it to our unique global map of solar-powered EV charging stations.
