DONG Energy Powers Electric Cars

Dong_Energy.jpg

Happy Monday, everyone. Before I get started, I would just like to announce that there is a company in Denmark—Dansk Olie og NaturGas—that abbreviates their name as “DONG.” As DONG is Denmark’s state energy producer, this could be the most important development in sustainability in a long time.

Let me illustrate the gravity of this news, via quotes from Treehugger:

The Danish press questioned whether DONG can pull off its promises.

Lord, we’ve all been there.

DONG is in the news because they have teamed up with auto manufacturer Renault to build an electric vehicle system in Copenhagen, followed by expansion into the rest of Denmark. I wish them all the best, because electric car infrastructures are neat—and because I would like to continue to childishly titter when writing about their success.

    LOVE foreign companies and their acronyms/mangling of English. A friend of mine worked a trade show for a Korean motorcycle helmet company named “LAH”, which stands for “long and hard”. You know, “it’s tough, and it lasts a long time” – at least that’s the explanation one of the company reps gave. Whee!

    Maybe they should form a partnership with Wang Laboratories.

    NEWS: They are developing a bigger, metallic-colored version of their electric vehicle.

    It will be called Long DONG silver.

    Sorry.

    “The car was supposed to do 0 – 100 kilometers in 7.5 seconds… (8 hours to recharge).”

    It even shares some qualities with its namesake.

    I assume that they’ll do fine during the day, but the nocturnal emissions could be a problem.

    It is funny how a company named DONG is working to help end the decades of global a**-raping by the oil producers.

  9. BetterLivingThroughScience says:

    They ought to get Gedde Wantanabe to be their spokesman.

    “Dong, where is my automobile?”
