OK, so it only took a couple of years for Rhode Island to get the hang of electric vehicle-specific license plates, like its New England neighbors. Now that the smallest state in the union has caught on, it's nice to see that Rhode Island has upped the game by including hybrids in that strategy.
When you run the smallest state in the nation (by geography), there's really no excuse for range anxiety to be an issue. Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee may have thought as much when he announced that his state will add 50 publicly accessible electric-vehicle charging stations this summer.
