Electric future cars needs recharging stations instead of gas stations. Better Place has already contracted to build a network of recharging stations in 4 countries, including in the Bay Area in San Francisco.
Today, they have unveiled their first recharging station in Tel Aviv, Israel. Better Place plans to have recharging stations available throughout Israel by 2011. This will enable electric car owners to drive everywhere.
Israel is an excellent test country because it is so small. The whole country is about 500 miles long by 50 miles wide, the size of New York State.
