Electric Cars invasion!
Better place and Renault plan to produce of tens of thousand electric vehicles a year from 2011 and market them in Denmark and Israel. The average price will be around £23,000 and ‘Electric car drivers will need to sign up for a monthly subscription with Better Place to get access to the batteries but the cost hasn’t been revealed for the moment. Drivers will be able to charge the batteries at home (several hours) or at a ‘swap station’ (several minutes). Already around a hundred of those stations are planned to be install in Denmark and some charge spots at car parks and on streets will also be provided.
According to Better Place, France will probably be the next spot after Denmark and Israel!
