Electric Cars Ready to Make Move in '09
While the trials and tribulations of the Big Three automakers got most of the attention this year, electric cars may make news in 2009.
"All of the auto makers are working on electrical vehicles in some form," said Jennifer Watts, spokeswoman for Washington, D.C.-based Electric Drive Transportation Association.
There's plenty of room to grow, she said. While the sale of hybrid cars -- vehicles with both gas-powered and electric engines -- continues to increase each year, Watts said electric-powered cars make up only 2 percent of the vehicles on U.S. roads even though hybrid technology is over 10 years old.
