Also saw one on TV recently. Maybe there's hope for EVs yet.

So you were thinking GE announced the purchase of 25,000 EVs over the next 5 years out of the goodness of their hearts? They are in the electricity generation and delivery bussiness and stand to make a tidy profit from the infrastructure that EVs need. The annouced purchase of 10,000 Volts in 2011 alone will drive many governments and service businesses to purchase these charging stations.....

P.S. FYI, GE equipment generates over 1/3 of the worlds electricity.

smart business move and it will help us in the long run, if they get those charging stations mounted all over the place.

Knowing what the E in GE stands for I'm not at all surprised that this is purely a business move, but if it's one that adds momentum to the industry then I'm all for it. In 10 or 20 years time when the market is cornered by a few multi-national corporations who have a stranglehold on the consumer, then I'll not be so happy.
