Electric cars to fuel up at gas stations

20th December 2011, Comments 0 comments

The Dutch public works ministry has announced that gas stations along the motorways can apply for a licence to operate charging stations from 10 January which could then be operational by mid 2012.

A full battery gives an electric car a range of about 140 kilometres. The speed chargers would give batteries an 80-percent charge in about 20 minutes.

Entrepreneurs will not have to pay rent until 2015, when the situation will be evaluated .
