Europe: Portable chargers, boosters to ease green car charging woes

Chevrolet Europe’s president Susan Doherty drives to work every day in an electric car, and thanks to a recharging station at work, she never worries about running out of power.

For most other people, however, it remains a challenge to find electric charging stations to refuel.

As a result sales of electric cars have lagged, with most consumers going for hybrid options that at least offer the possibility of running on petrol or diesel.

But with interest in going green growing among consumers, and with tougher emissions standards to kick in from 2013 across the European Union, companies are beginning to introduce new solutions.

At this year’s Geneva Motor Show, several car components firms exhibited portable chargers while others announced deals with major automakers to build more charging stations to ease refueling headaches.

After all, “electricity is the way to go in the future especially if we want to have zero emission vehicles,” Doherty said.
