The Rockefeller Foundation Highlights My China video as a TOP 2013 story

by Aaron Rockett on January 13, 2014

The Rockefeller Foundation highlighted my China story on vending machines for electric vehicles to combat pollution as one of four “resilience stories” of 2013 “you might of missed.” I guess…don’t miss it?

Rent a car from a Chinese vending machine

To meet China’s increasing demand for automobiles, a company called Kandi Technologies is bringing an hourly car rental service to Hangzhou, a city of 8.7 million. Unlike Western companies like Zipcar, Kandi is building giant vending machines that hold between 30 and 300 cars each. For just $3.25 an hour, Hangzhou residents can rent an electric vehicle resembling a Smart Car with a range of 75 miles and a top speed of 50 miles an hour—ideal for urban use.
