Here in the United States where a typical commute exceeds 15 miles, range anxiety is at the forefront of the electric vehicle discussion. The residents of the island of Terschelling, in the northern Netherlands, needn't worry about such things. Their 12 miles of paved roads represent less than a quarter of the total length of bike paths on the itty-bitty island.

Terschelling's size makes it an opportune testing ground for an electric first aid vehicle, and Oslo-based EV maker, Th!nk, has just the car for the job. UMCG Ambulance Service has equipped a Th!nk City with a full complement of medical supplies for first aid and support of other emergency vehicles. The Norwegian EV's 110 mile range is more than enough to cover Terschelling's territory and it promotes zero-emissions transportation at the same time.

Terschelling hopes to become a CO2 neutral island, and vehicles like the Th!nk City should help achieve that end.
