This video is an excellent presentation about one potential way to get electric cars on the road as a reality in the next few years.
I am amazed by the number of compelling ideas that are covered in this short piece and I HIGHLY recommend it to everyone.
Shai Agassi was a president at SAP but left that post to found his current company, Better Place. I first saw this video through my TED feed on my Boxee unit and I was floored. I’ve since watched it again to show others, and I recently stumbled across this article on Wired about one of the battery stations that he mentions in the presentation.
