The Nissan EV team may have been spending some time in Sweden. The automaker is thinking out loud about an EV charging network that takes into consideration where people actually stop their cars. The planned network for America may therefore include places such as fast-food restaurants and other roadside stops or even car dealers, which could offer recharging as a courtesy. Electricity at these posts would be paid using a credit card. With these chargers, a car could get up to 80 percent battery

Future EV recharging networks? Plenty of them. Networks being built right now? Not that many. But thanks to our reader Antti, we found out that Finland's second largest city, Espoo, and the Fortum utility company are building an EV recharging network. Fortum also worked on the network in Stockholm, Sweden. Both Espoo and the utility company will use these stations next winter, with a plug-in Prius and an all-electric Fiat Doblò, as seen in Norway.
