Electric Tour Boats In Paris To Use Repurposed Renault EV Batteries
The Seine Alliance, a river tourism developer in Paris, has partnered with Renault to utilize used EV batteries to power its electric tour boats. There are several reasons to use electric boats rather than gas- or diesel-powered ones. They have zero direct emissions so there are no exhaust fumes. They’re quieter and therefore more comfortable, and electricity typically costs less than fossil fuels. In this case, the boats are using repurposed EV batteries, so they are recycling them instead of having to buy new ones. Read more here.
