This is a boneyard near Paris, France with hundreds of electric powered cars. Mind you, these are only cars used by the City of Paris and not personal vehicles. All of these have the same issue — the battery storage cells have given out and need to be replaced. Why not just replace them you ask? Well two reasons: First, the battery storage cells cost almost double what the vehicle cost new, and second, no landfill or disposals will allow the batteries to be disposed of there. So these green fairy tale electric cars are all sitting in vacant lots while their batteries drain toxins into the ground.

‘Libre comme l’air’. (Free as the air) Hmm.
