Nissan enjoys a 95 percent share of the EV market in Holland, which just so happens to have a Smart Highway that glows in the dark just like this Leaf. If ever there was a specific car that was meant to drive on a specific road, surely this is it.

Dutch courts have granted Spyker's petition and overturned a previous bankruptcy ruling, paving the way for the exotic automaker to get back in business - with plans to produce the B6 Venator, merge with an electric aircraft manufacturer and produce its first electric vehicle.

If you thought electric vehicles were expensive, head on over to Rotterdam in the Netherlands. There, you can buy a Nissan Leaf for the amazingly low price of just 7,450 euros ($9,460 US). Or, if a practical delivery van is more your style, check out the Nissan e-NV200 Visia Flex, which is absurdly priced at 4,950 euros ($6,400).

Any dreams that you may have of cruising along the Netherlands' Tron-like, glow-in-the-dark roads are ruined – for now. The pilot project to test the glimmering streets fizzled because the illumination just wasn't bright enough in many situations, and it failed at times when it was needed most.

We have all seen the team-building exercise where people fall backward and trust other team members to catch them. The Dutch military has its own version, where a Leopard tank barrels towards a group at full speed and everyone hopes it stops in time. It's like a your average brake test, but with a 68.7-ton tank in place of a car and human life on the line.
