Executives Offer Mixed Assessment on Near Term Future of Electric Cars
Auto executives, advocates of "renewable" transportation and innovators of the electric car met on Capitol Hill yesterday to discuss the possibility of finally saying farewell to the internal combustion engine.
The Green Car Summit, hosted by Green Car Journal and the upcoming Washington Auto Show, brought these industry leaders together to address Americans' commitment to a new transportation regime, the cost of revamping the nation's infrastructure and the role of government in ushering in "a new phase" of cleaner transportation.
The summit opened with a question from the moderator on whether "hopes, beliefs and federal dollars" were enough to deliver an affordable electric vehicle. Jason Wolf, vice president of a firm developing a network of charging stations in Israel and Denmark, responded that electric cars are "inevitable." Brian Wynne, president of the Electric Drive Transportation Association, said that "'renewable,' in transportation, is the electric car."
