Continuing my trip, I made a stop in Amsterdam and visit Anne Kloppenborg and his New Electric company, building electric cars and boats. I made my way to Anne's workshop which is tucked in behind some industrial buildings.  I walked into the right shop and...

Tesla Copenhagen Denmark Showroom and Electric Bicycles
Continuing my trip I tracked down the Tesla showroom in Copenhagen.  This is a very dense city with small streets and the showroom was tiny but in a high-end shopping area.  They did have just enough room for a rolling chassis and a production 90D model run...
