Big 3 Say They'll Need Help to Go Electric

The Ford vice president steered Corker toward a display showing the underside of a Focus converted to all-electric power, and pressed a case that Ford and other automakers couldn’t make such models happen alone.
"We are really going to need to partner with the government and the electric companies," Fields said. "The infrastructure is key. If you’re going from one state to another, where are you going to plug in, what are you going to charge for it?"
