As part of a trial to prove that an electric car can now serve as one's main car rather than a second car, an Uppingham based BMW I3 has reached the north of Portugal having travelled through France and Spain.  The car called first at Uppingham's twin town Caudebec en Caux, France (pictured), where it was recharged by one of the town's twinning association families prior to a visit to the local Mairie. 

Recharging the car on its journey has been via a mix of public charging points and free overnight charges from hotels en route. A celebratory charge in Porto, Portugal was provided by the city's BMW I dealer before the vehicle toured the north of the country and finally boarded a ferry in Santander, Spain  to return to the midlands via Portsmouth.
