Obama's goal of putting one million hybrid and electric vehicles on U.S. roads by 2015 is "reasonable," says Nissan's senior vice president, Andy Palmer, but only if the government gets around to installing thousands of charging stations nationwide within four year's time. Palmer says that since, "carmakers can't go and put hydrogen fueling and charging stations throughout the U.S.," the government will have to.
Currently, there are well over 1,800 plug-in vehicle charging stations in the U.S. and, by the end of 2013, at least 22,000 charging points should be scattered throughout the States. But with U.S. sales of hybrid and electric vehicles predicted to hit 1.6 million by the end of the decade, some analysts question whether 22,000 will be even remotely close to enough.
