Race Is On to Build Electric Vehicle Charging Stations

Electric vehicles are no longer a technology of the future. Californians will be driving the Nissan Leaf and Coda Sedan by the end of the year, and several other automakers have all-electric and plug-in hybrid models in the pipeline. Now the race is on to build electric vehicle charging stations, where drivers can pull up and plug in their cars.  Electric cars currently can travel only a limited number of miles before the batteries need to be recharged, leading to what is known in the industry as "range anxiety."  There are two solutions to range anxiety: better batteries and charging stations.  5/01 San Jose Mercury News
