Better Place electric car revolution motors on

Better Place, Shai Agassi’s electric car revolution, has joined not-for-profit NGO The Climate Group to help accelerate the transition away from the internal combustion engine.

We’ve sung the praises of Better Place before on Greenbang for its plan to set up country-wide networks and grids of charging stations powered from renewable sources for electric cars, with customers paying for the fuel on a subscription plan.

Since its official launch in 2007, Better Place has already partnered with major car manufacturers, developed prototype electric cars, and announced plans to introduce the “mobility operator model” in Israel, Denmark, California, Hawaii and Australia, with support from The Climate Group’s network there.

Steve Howard, CEO, of The Climate Group said:

“The low carbon future will belong to both established players who adapt and disruptive new players who will see amazing growth. Better Place has a plan that could transform the way we drive and are a highly influential new player – they embody the kind of entrepreneurial low carbon thinking that could just save our planet and save our lifestyles.”

Shai Agassi, founder and CEO of Better Place, added:

“Countries increasingly realise that we’re overdue in moving beyond the high carbon Car 1.0 model, built on the internal combustion engine. It’s time to move to the Car 2.0 model of electric cars powered by renewable energy, and we want to make them more appealing for consumers.”

    I love the idea of the electric car being car 2.0. And yes, please let’s make them more appealing to consumers – apart from fear of the unknown, I think the looks of most electric cars do put people off.
