Cruising the Swiss Alps with Alpmobil

In the context of the BP oil spill, it is refreshing to see that there are true energy alternatives to fossil fuels. One company, THINK, has developed a nifty little car which will go for 160 km/100 mi on a single charge! In my opinion, Switzerland's small size and environmentally friendly public make it a perfect market for these "THINK City" flitzers!

The more I am reading, the more I want to get my hands on one of these charming electric cars! Fortunately, the mobility brand of Migros has just launched Alpmobil in Goms. So tree huggers, eco-tourists, myself or anyone curious about this zero emission vehicle can now rent one and cruise the beautiful Swiss Alps without polluting the environment!

What's your take on this? Do you think it is simply a gadget, or the future of transportation for tourists?
