Portugal And Electric Cars
Portugal, with the help of Renault and Nissan, want to build 1300 charging stations for electric cars by the end of 2011. Portugal has 10.6 million people. If the same initiative happened in a city the size of Coventry, it works out to 36 stations -- two for each ward. Tax incentives and reduced parking rates will also be offered to drivers of electric vehicles. Why can't we have some of that ambition in Britain?
