We've seen a swell in RoToR camera set ups in bike videos lately, and we have to say the trick makes for some pretty entertaining viewing. Take the clip you'll see after the break that was worked up by Supermotard Denmark, for example. The video tracks one rider as he finishes up a practice day. The crew crafted their own homemade version of the RoToR setup we know and love, strapped it to a rider's head and came out with some awesome footage. There's plenty of peg-scraping glory as the rider wo

Can a Nissan Leaf beat a Tesla Roadster Sport? At the inaugural running of the Oresund Rally, which features nothing but electric cars that took place in Denmark and Sweden from September 10 to 11, it can.

AC Propulsion, a global company involved in electric drive design, development and manufacturing, has delivered a battery-powered eBox to the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) for tests that evaluate vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technologies. The research aims to advance the integration of electric vehicles with Denmark's grid.

With the UN Climate change conference currently under way in Copenhagen Denmark, it's not at all surprising that a member of the Danish royal family would make an appearance at some of the events. Of course it wouldn't do to show up at such a conference in a Rolls-Royce or Bentley. However, a Prius would be a bit too pedestrian. How about something with some flash and lower emissions than the iconic Toyota? Throw in a Danish connection and you've got a deal.

Will trains and cars become the voyaging version of peanut butter and chocolate? Perhaps. Better Place is partnering with DSB, Denmark's largest rail service provider, to offer an electric car sharing service at its train terminals. The project will begin next year with a pilot program at the stations in Høje-Taastrup (pictured above) and Skanderborg. These are seen as great places to start because, not only are they a good distance apart, but they both serve the largest population center

Autonews interviewed Henry Li, general manager of BYD Auto's export division, and got the Chinese marque's plans for international expansion. BYD's plans can be summarized this way: "gas for developing countries, EVs for developed countries." Currently the manufacturer is selling about 7,000 cars in 20 countries, most of them the F3 sedan (pictured above) and they expect to see sales increases of 50 to 70 percent this year. However, when the car comes to Europe, it will likely be the electric ve

Automobile races that try to put on a green mantle are seriously nothing new. There's Formula 1, Formula Zero, and ALMS to name just a few. Coming soon (well, in a year) to a country near you (if you live in Denmark) is a new eco-aware speed event called the CO2 E - Race. At least, that's what we think this this is about. The current website is woefully short on things like details.

Yesterday we told you of the impending announcement of a deal involving Denmark and Project Better Place. Now that it has been made official, we have the details of the agreement straight off the Project Better Place website.

As our faithful readers are aware, we reported last November that the government of Denmark has been talking with Project Better Place about the possibility of setting up an electric car program along with a charging station network. Now comes word of the impending official announcement of the initial pilot program.

The Zap Xebra is the little electric vehicle that can. It's not the most powerful or safety-tested vehicle on the road, but it does offer zero-emission transportation and carrying capacity and is available today. For electric car scientists at Lithium Balance in Copenhagen, the current-model Xebras with lead acid batteries were lacking and so they teamed up with Zap to develop lithium-ion battery Xebras that can go 152 miles per charge. This upgrade to the Xebra's capabilities - the current rang
