San Francisco–L.A., Electric Style

New, 6 comments

While we await a citywide network of electric-vehicle battery-swap stations, an E.V. team has created a "charging corridor" between here and L.A.— the first in the U.S., if not the world. Five charging stations for electric vehicles now dot Highway 101, creating the "electric highway" once dreamt of by environ enthusiasts so many years ago. The charging stations are located in Salinas, Atascadero, Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo, with a fifth in Goleta going live mid-October. The charges take from one to three hours, so drivers will be hanging at McDonald's a bit longer than the usual. Hey, we do it for Mother Earth. [Autopia, previously]
