Driving a 120 year old Lems electric car

I went for a drive in a 1903 Lems electric vehicle! There were only 20 of these pioneering, vintage electric vehicles ever made, and only two survive today.

This meant it was a real treat to see how it coped with modern traffic in the New Zealand city of Christchurch (including drivers using their phones) and whether or not it could manage the strain of a McDonald’s drive-thru!
