Electric Cars Shine in the City of Lights
PARIS -- As the race to offer the first commercially viable electric car charges up, automakers hoping to cash in on environmental concerns displayed a slew of models at the Paris Motor Show on Friday.
But executives acknowledged that uncertainties linger over the batteries needed to power them: technology needs to advance to meet cost and weight requirements, and infrastructure to recharge them is lacking.
Some of the models on show are still prototypes — such as Renault SA's Z.E. Concept — while others such as Daimler AG's all-electric Smart ED, have entered the test phase.
