enterprise, Venturi, based in the tiny principality of Monte Carlo =

that is just now starting its first American venture.

There were three cars on Venturi=92s stand, all wildly different. One =

second was a modest panel truck done up in the livery of La Poste, the
French postal service ... an electrified version of a Citro=EBn =

Berlingo (similar to the Ford Transit Connect).

vans from Shanghai to Paris ... the cargo area was fitted with a =

larger battery pack, yielding 300 miles of range, but still requiring
the kindness of strangers to get the thing charged up ...

lithium-ion-polymer battery on board ... =
