If US states want to really put 3.3 electric cars on the road, should listen to Elon

Auto motives. Rick

California, New York and six other US announced yesterday they collaborate to put 3.3 million electric on the road by 2025, by promoting the of charging stations and encouraging of zero-emission vehicles. (Separately, the government has set a target of 1 million cars by 2015.)

The eight have been in the vanguard for cars and collectively represent 23% of the US market. According to a memorandum of they will also set for purchases of zero-emission vehicles for fleets, consider offering buyers financial incentives, and and streamline the process of granting for charging stations.

That’s all well and good. But the reason for the initiative is also the obstacle holding back of most electric cars: limited range. With like the Ford Focus and Nissan Leaf able to go 75 miles on a charge, the lack of stations has kept even buyers out of the showrooms.

The average commute is 37 miles roundtrip p. 12), though the number of mega-commuters who travel more 50 miles a day is growing, according to the US Bureau. (The traffic-clogged between San Francisco and Silicon is about 100 miles roundtrip, for

While that average would seem to fall within the 75-mile range of an car, keep in mind this is the range only optimal conditions. Climbing driving at highway speeds or in the drains a car’s battery and leaves little power for trips to take the kids to practice or go to the grocery stores. And a trip outside the city? it.

Building enough charging to compensate for that lack of will cost many of millions of dollars, though the haven’t put a price tag on the effort.

So how about spending some of money on studying Tesla maybe buying its Model S for fleets to boost the Silicon automaker’s production? Tesla is the US electric carmaker with a that can go more than 200 on a charge. Selling for between and $100,000, the Model S is hardly a car, though as we’ve it outsells 10 other big automakers in

But it’s the business model the states should buy.

The range of the Model S and the forthcoming X sports utility vehicle that Tesla drivers need to charge anywhere but at and perhaps at their workplace. For distances, they can stop at stations strategically placed highways that let them add 150 of range in as little as 20 minutes.

money is being spent on much-slower chargers at stores, malls and other urban in the hope that drivers use them. Tesla says it blanket the US with its Superchargers for a of the cost, because it studies the patters of its customers and installs stations only where tend to travel. This hard; most other cars also record drivers’ habits.

If privacy concerns could be and automakers would be willing to that data with transportation planners, the rollout of charging stations could be targeted and cash-efficient.

Within a few Tesla plans to make a car that the company will in the $30,000 range. By then likely other automakers offer models with range. And that could all those charging stations bankrolled by states and other as useful as the corner payphone.
