Switzerland knows what her majesty’s servants need
While we have known for some time that the next James Bond film installation will feature an electric vehicle, the Swiss company Juice Technology has taken the opportunity to advertise a short clip showing what tomorrow’s superspy really needs.
James Bond goes electric
Similarly to other British celebrities, James Bond will be going electric in her Majesty’s service in the next film. While the movies have always been noted by car enthusiasts, the Aston Martin Rapide E, is upholding the tradition and exclusively so as only 155 units will be built.
The dark side of Bond.
The producers behind the James Bond movie series put off fans of electric cars with a categoric “no” to a Bond EV, seeing it as to austere for Her Majesty’s spy. In Spectre, only the villain got to drive a hybrid, so who is the good and the bad guy actually?!

James Bond mode.
Tesla has hidden a neat Easter Egg in the Model S dashboard features. The electric car can be transformed (on screen at least) into the submersible Lotus Espirit from the 1977 James Bond film “The Spy Who Loved Me.” Can you guess the access code for the “007” feature?
A true villain.
In the new Bond movie Spectre, Bond’s nemesis Herr Oberhauser is to flee in the Jaguar C-X75 Concept car the company shunned to produce. The film version will waive the original four electric motors for a V8. A villain with a conscience would have been out of character it seems.
