It's a good angle in perspective but this may be too small intermediate step to catch. But I wish best for this project. 3k cars + 1k stations should do the trick.

It's dangerous to be right, when your government is wrong.
They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

Electric cars to get universal charger

Worried about finding a compatible recharging point for your electric car? Fear not - seven vehicle manufacturers have agreed to adopt a standardised charging system in Europe and the US. Audi, BMW, Daimler, Ford, General Motors, Porsche and Volkswagen have all signed up to the scheme.

It is a move that should make it easier to build up an electric charging infrastructure and reduce manufacturing costs. It is also good for consumers who won't have to deal with multiple charging adaptors - a situation that has frustrated cellphone owners for years but will finally be remedied next year with the adoption of a standard connection for all cellphones. Existing electric car owners won't be left out either, as the new standard is backwards-compatible with older vehicles.

The seven manufacturers have also agreed to use a universal protocol, HomePlug Green Phy, to communicate between the car and charging station. This will make it possible to integrate electric vehicles with smart grids in the future, allowing drivers to connect with their cars through smartphone apps and energy companies to store excess electricity in your car battery.

I looked into the tesla model S some more, and it turns out that it has 3 ranges, 160 miles, 240 miles, and 300 miles. They start at $56,000 $66,000 and $77,000 respectably. I personally can totally see them reaching their 20k sales goal for 2013. Remember, the Nissan Leaf has a range of 75 miles.

Nissan will launch its own plug-in hybrid by 2015

By Ami Cholia | October 24, 2011, 11:30 AM PDT

Nissan will launch its own plug-in hybrid by 2015 as part of a new five-year environmental plan that aims to reduce the automaker’s carbon footprint.

CEO Carlos Ghosn said that Nissan will invest 70 percent of its research budget towards the development of environmental technologies, totaling around 300 billion yen ($3.94 billion) over the time frame.

The plug-in will be built on in-house technology. Ghosn also reiterated that the Nissan-Renault SA alliance plans to sell 1.5 million electric vehicles by March 2017, as a means to improve its fuel economy across its fleet in Japan, China, Europe and the U.S. by 35 percent compared to 2005 levels.

I'm looking forward to when Oil cartel will be on their knees and when everyone drives a nice electric car that they charged on home generated solar energy, this would put oil and greedy energy companies out of the equation and give some consumers real power. I do look forward to that day!

You don't think Solar Energy companies and manufacturers aren't going to be the next barrens over the global economy? I think the consumer will continually get screwed no matter what new technology emerges.

No, because solar will be largely decentralised, and there's a near-infinite supply of solar energy.

Except Big Oil invested heavily in solar. Same Oil barons are going to be the next Lithium Lords.

What is true, just, and beautiful is not determined by popular vote. The masses everywhere are ignorant, short-sighted, motivated by envy, and easy to fool. Democratic politicians must appeal to these masses in order to be elected. Whoever is the best demagogue will win. Almost by necessity, then, democracy will lead to the perversion of truth, justice and beauty. -Hans Hermann Hoppe

Oil is a single product unable to be created anywhere else and in places it is virtually impossible for no money people to get there hands on. Solar power will start of expensive and them become more cheaper over time as well as easier to create. it'll get to a point were damn near any low end company could create it if they wanted to. It is entirely possible big oil will sit on any new patents but it will become much more difficult to control as tech gets easier to create.

Gasoline Fuel Cell Would Boost Electric Car Range

The advanced fuel cell could eliminate range anxiety and make electric cars more practical, while keeping carbon-dioxide emissions low.

Air battery to let electric cars outlast gas guzzlers

06 January 2012 by Duncan Graham-Rowe

ONE of the biggest drawbacks with owning an electric vehicle (EV) is range anxiety - a driver's nagging fear that the battery charge will not get them to their destination. Now IBM claims to have solved a fundamental problem that may lead to the creation of a battery with an 800-kilometre (500-mile) range - letting EVs potentially compete with most petrol engines for the first time.
