And here are the reports
If you want to contact Anton Bech,
Saturday, 5 July 2003
Anton reports that yesterday he made a test with the complete fast charger, i.e. 6 modules @ 1 kW.
It took 5 minutes before the meter was on zero, then 75 min. to 100%, and finally he charged 10 min. on 100%.
Total 1½ hours, and 15 kWh from the grid.
Normally he drives some 90 to 110 km on this amount of energy.
Monday 7 July, 1.30 PM
Short report from Husum, about 50 km south of the danish/ german border.
Start from Ringkøbing short before 8 AM.
First charging in Riebe, about half the distance to Husum, where the second charging has started.
Driving distance so far 209 km :-)
Monday 7 July, 6.40 PM
Congratulation, day one fullfilld as planned!
They have just arrived in Hamburg.
The only problem was to find their way the last part in Hamburg.
The third charging was at a Shell-station in Itzehoe, some 60 km north of Hamburg.
Total driving distance today is 357 km, and Anton thinks he could easily have made another 50 km on the remaining energy in the batteries :-)
Tuesday 8 July, 12.45 PM
Start from Hamburg at 7 AM
After 108 km, charging in Verden 9 - 9.30 AM
Arrived to Herford 12.45 PM, and start charging.
Herford is just northeast of Bielefeld, and 115 km from Verden.
Already 223 km so far today!
They have charged on several auto workshops, and paid 5€ each time.
They intend to get to Hoppecke Accumulatorwerke on "officetime" today.
Tuesday 8 July, 9.30 PM
Herford - Wielund?, 97 km, passed without problems,
so even the 110 km on small and hilly roads to Gladenbach, southwest of Marburg.
They had a pleasent visit at Hoppecke Accumulatorwerke.
Total driving distance today is 430 km! with 12½ hours
driving and charging time.
(They had some time in Hoppecke doing nothing with the car)
Total 357 + 430 = 787 km in two days!
Wednesday 9 July, 13.45 PM
Todays first trip, 120 km, was from Gladenbach to Darmstadt where they had todays first charging.
Then another 120 km to Kandel, about 20 km west of Karlsruhe and 20 km north of the french border, where they have just arrived and start charging.
Total distance so far today 240 km, and about 70% of this has been on Autobahn/ Highway, so (even) Anton is astonished of how well the Peugeot 106 Electric runs. "Just better and better" he says :-)
We communicate by cellphone, so we have to be brief, but I have forwarded all friendly greetings. Thank you all for them.
Wednesday 9 July, 16.45 PM
They did it, 1.128 km in three days!
Even the last 101 km from Kandel to Strasbourg/
Molsheim went on without any problems!
That even means they drove 341 km in 9 hours,
from 7.45 AM to 4.45 PM today!
Anton and Anne-Sophie,
you really gave us some exiting days.
and we all think you deserve a coool drink . . .
