Better Place, in partnership with Kyo-ya Hotels & Resorts' Sheraton Waikiki Resort and Hawaiian Electric Company, has stepped up its efforts to electrify Honolulu. The trio will launch a project aimed at incorporating electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure in Honolulu, kicking off with the installation of a limited number of charging stations in Waikiki and O'ahu, followed by the introduction of seven undisclosed EVs.
As we've said before, the islands of Hawaii appear to be ideally suited for electric vehicles (EVs). The picturesque beaches, sparkling blue water and breathtaking mountain ranges are a sight to behold. EVs, often tagged as zero-emissions vehicles, are believed to have less environmental impact than other vehicles types and appeal to people in Hawai'i for a variety of obvious reasons, which are discussed in detail here.
