BRISTOL, R.I. -- Rhode Island is building up to 50 electric vehicle charging stations for motorists around the state and also plans to purchase hybrid or electric-powered vehicles for the state fleet whenever possible, the governor announced Tuesday.

Gov. Lincoln Chafee said the moves, paid for by federal stimulus money, will help improve the state’s economy and save money on gas.

‘‘We are developing a clean and efficient transportation infrastructure for the future, saving taxpayer dollars and reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other air pollutants,’’ Chafee said in a written statement.
