Upset by the ICE-ing, these electric car owners are blocking this gas station
ICE-ing is a phenomenon that happened a year ago on the other side of the Atlantic. The principle is simple: owners of ICE cars voluntarily park in front of the charging stations of electric cars to prevent them from charging. Today, this phenomenon has spread to other countries such as Croatia.
Here, many electric car owners are more than tired of not being able to recharge their vehicles peacefully. Reserved spaces are often occupied and intruders in thermal cars often do not do so on purpose. To fight this and express their frustration, a group of electric car owners decided to hold their own demonstration.
These people simply did the opposite by occupying a gas station and preventing other motorists from refuelling. The event took place not far from the capital Zagreb. A dozen electric car owners have arrived. Among the vehicles were many Tesla Model S, a BMW i3, a Volkswagen e-Golf and a Volkswagen e-Up!.
The Tesla Motors Club Croatia organized the event. This time, it was the owners of electric cars who were proud of their actions. On the other hand, it must have been extremely frustrating for all those who wanted to refuel. Especially since these annoyed people have probably never blocked a charging station. This action will certainly not encourage them to buy an electric car!
