The Follow me e-tron or Follow me EV is a semi-fictional Follow-me vehicle based on Gijs's work, but an electric-powered version with Chinese characteristics. It was made just for fun.

At its core is a realistic electric engine, meticulously programmed in Nasal, complemented by a detailed electrical system, also written in Nasal. For driving assistance, it includes an advanced steering helper and unique systems like 'AutoCrash' and 'AutoSpeed'. The vehicle's functionality is further enhanced with an Auto Hold feature, parking radar, and working airbags. It also experiments with an Advanced Emergency Braking (AEB) system.

The interior of the Follow me EV is highly customizable, offering several fully remodeled interiors with operational switches. Users can choose from various instrument styles, including a Canvas glass display instrument tailored for specific interior designs.

For personalization, the Follow me EV offers selectable license plates in a Chinese style and a variety of liveries. It is fully equipped for multiplayer interaction, supporting multiplayer passengers, dynamic scenery object placement, and management.

A standout feature is its limo variant, adding a touch of luxury and uniqueness.

These features collectively make the Follow me EV a pioneering model in the FlightGear universe, combining realism, customization, and innovation.


Being the very first electric car in FlightGear, the Follow me e-tron features a realistic electric supercar driving experience while having an exterior of the classic Renault Kangoo I Follow me vehicle.
