    It’s not that he’s not in it for the being green part…
    He realized his battery would run out without being able to reach a charging point in time, so he asked a passing truck driver for some help. He’s also saying in the video that he’s getting recharged 20x faster this way than if he was to simply plug into a regular home outlet. Also he’s saying that for approximately every 2km driven he’s getting 5km of battery life when driving 60km/hour.
