Electric cars spruced up for green transport
Sixty electric cars have been given a refreshing new look featuring classic games like Pac-Man and Taiko no Tatsujin and a number of interactive events are held in Putuo and Jiading districts to promote green transport.
The 60 electric cars operated by EVCard, one of the country's biggest hourly car rental operator, have been decorated and feature characters in Tekken, Pac-Man and Taiko no Tatsujin, all classic serial video games owned by Bandai Namco.
They will run across the city and are on display on Yichang Road in Putuo and the Life Hub at An'ting Town in Jiading through Wednesday. At the Life Hub, test drive, games play and lucky draw are held to promote an eco-friendly way of transport.
EVCard and Bandai Namco Shanghai have inked cooperation, and the latter is a leading interactive entertainment software publisher known for creating and publishing many of the industry's top video games.
Tekken, Pac-Man and Taiko no Tatsujin are popular among those who are born in the 1970s and 1980s and will strike a chord of nostalgia among them.
EVCard had more than 18,000 new energy cars in operation in 34 cities across the country as of November.
