Spain Seeks to Put 1 Million Electric Cars on Road by 2014
MADRID -- Spain's government aims to have 1 million electric cars on the roads by 2014 as part of a plan to cut energy consumption and dependence on expensive imports, Industry Minister Miguel Sebastian said on Tuesday.
"Electric vehicles are the future and the driver of the industrial revolution," Sebastian said in testimony to a congressional panel.
Sebastian recently unveiled government plans to cut energy use by 10 percent over two years in a bid to save 5 billion euros ($7.87 billion) annually as oil prices soar and Spain suffers a severe economic slowdown.
