Amsterdam's 3rd EV Carsharing Project

For the launch of car2go in Amsterdam last November, Radio Netherland Worldwide produced this nice 3 minute history of EV carsharing there.  It's in English.

It has some nice pictures of Witkar ("White Carts"), an earlier attempt at an EV carsharing service from the 1970s, a short comment from its founder Luud Schimmelpinnik; pictures of an even earlier EV from 1914 (!) and a comment from a skeptic of the whole idea.  Enjoy.
