Electric vehicle support system to be built in Oregon

According to Sustainable Business Oregon,

“Over the next six months, ECOTality will begin installing the first of more than 1,000 charging stations across Portland, Salem and Eugene in partnership with Nissan North America Inc. Starting in December, Nissan will begin delivering its all-electric Leaf vehicles in the region early next year.

The ECOTality project, paired with news that several major automakers — Ford, Mitsubishi, Smart and Navistar among others — have selected Portland as a test market for their forthcoming electric vehicles, has economic development officials salivating over Oregon’s position as a leader in the still-embryonic world of EVs.”

Having the recharging stations in place of course makes the region a logical choice for manufacturers to test market their vehicles.  I expect that here the electric vehicles will sell very well.
