Plugging in: City tries to pave the way for electric vehicle use
By Tara Ramsey The upcoming new year might usher in an acceleration of a movement in Charlotte toward electric vehicles. First, beginning late this year, the Chevy Volt and Nissan Leaf go on sale. The city of Charlotte and Duke Energy Corp. are planning to purchase several of the vehicles for their fleets. Also next year, the city is planning to install 20 vehicle-charging stations. Last week, Duke showed off a $120,000 electric car, the Tesla Motors Roadster, it is leasing. And this year, a Mooresville company is launching new models of plug-in vehicles that are being designed and built locally. It’s all part of what appears to be growing interest in the Greater Charlotte region to position the area as an electric-vehicle-friendly place.
