Hennessy's electric cars in one of its former bottling plants

It seems even 250-year-old Cognac houses want to be like Google these days. 

Hennessy, the Cognac brand that was founded in 1765 and is part of Moet Hennessy, announced today that it has bought 45 electric cars for its employees to get around its various company sites.

The move is similar to tech giant Google's fleet of electric transport at its California headquarters and is part of Hennessy's pledge to reduce its environmental impact. The silent, emission-free cars will also reduce noise pollution, thus making this beautiful part of France even more appealing than it already is.
