Agassi plans to scatter charging stations throughout the countries that choose to join the ambitious project. Moreover, it would work together with local entrepreneurs in each area, and would also cooperate with car manufacturers, battery makers and private entrepreneurs.

Carlos Ghosn, the president of the French-Japanese car manufacturer Renault Nissan, is expected to visit Israel on January 21, and take part in the inauguration event of the Israeli electric car enterprise.

Ghosn is expected to announce that his company will invest in the enterprise, which is led by the Israeli entrepreneur Shai Agassi, and set up a major development center in Israel.

Agassi's endeavor seeks to establish an infrastructure to cater for hundreds of thousands of environment-friendly electric cars, which will gradually replace petrol- and diesel-fueled cars, whose environmental effect is devastating.


The PAS series, which includes six different bikes, will have its official launch next month in Japan. Prices will start at US$800 to US$990.

The bikes will make their debut appearance in Ed's new comedy TV show, 'Living with Ed' which broadcasts Sundays at 10pm ET/PT on HGTV.

The scooters top out at a 25mph speed, although the ones on loan to the Sheriff's Department are calibrated to travel no faster than 18mph.
