Electric cars have a chicken and egg problem. Without a charging infrastructure to support EVs, consumers avoid them and carmakers have little incentive to build and sell them in quantities that make financial sense. That is set to change as eTec gears up to build a network of charging stations featuring 12,500 Level 2 (220V) and 250 Level 3 (fast-charge) charging systems in five U.S. markets. In response, Nissan pledged to sell 5,000 Leaf EVs in those areas in 2010, two years ahead of schedule. Isn’t it amazing how things start falling into place?
