How does one recharge an electric car with no power source?

Maybe South Africans can learn a thing or two from this Russian man

The answer is ‘the Russian way’…

This Russian man was stranded with his new state-of-the-art Tesla Model S (a car not available in SA)… but as electric cars  can do, it ran out of power.

No worries, what this innovative driver does in the video is connect his electric car to the back of a truck and let the truck drag the car behind it. With Tesla’s ‘regenerative brakes’ the car is also charging along the way. This might not be good for the well-being of the car, but hey at least it’s something!
