Green cars revolutionise resorts

When on vacation in Cambodia your priorities normally include visiting Angkor Wat, eating unheard of bugs and relaxing in a luxury resort – something E-Green is making easier with its eco-friendly cars.

Offering a new way of travelling around large resorts, the E-Green Classic Cars smoothly transport guests without the use of environmentally damaging petrol.

The stylish, electricity-run cars are becoming the latest trend with five-star hotels, which want to take their customer service to the next level.

Ensuring maximum comfort with leather seats for their guests, they can carry up to eight people, taking them from the pool or gym to their fine dining restaurant to their secluded bungalow and back for breakfast.

The cars are also catching on with wedding planners, helping to get the bride to the chapel on time and uncle “two-drinks-too-many” home safely.

Designed after antique cars familiar to fans of James Bond movies, the vehicles are fitted with stylised grills at the front and a sleek curvaceous body without doors that makes them easier to embark and disembark. A feature that not only enhances the passengers views and memories of tropical Cambodia, but also gives those who like to be seen an opportunity to show off.

The vehicles drive smoothly and almost silently, allowing guests to take in the surrounding nature – hear the birds singing and the monkeys playing.

Simply six to eight hours of charging, with your average household 220 volt adapter, will power the car for up to 80 kilometres, meaning that guests don’t have to be worried about getting caught out in the dark.

The recent move towards environmentally friendly cars is not without cause. Proven benefits include reducing greenhouse gas emissions, air and water pollution and preserving natural resources, benefiting us through cleaner food and water and a healthier ozone layer.

Using electricity also comes with financial benefits, saving the user money on petrol. Director of E-Green outlet Car4you Kjeld Olsen said that “it is easy to plan for, as you know how much the electricity will cost”.

Whilst the automobiles are not yet legal on the roads, safety belts are fitted in all their vehicles from the classic car to their tourism and utility cars to the golf carts which, in addition, are fitted with coolers to keep the guests hydrated as they do the rounds.
