Clinton Told Better Place CEO: "Electric Cars Should Be Free"

As any entrepreneur will tell you, starting a business isn’t easy.

Few know this more than Shai Agassi, founder of battery-swapping outfit Better Place. The company is making huge losses, has closed operations in some countries and even booted out Agassihimself as CEO.

Still, Agassi is one of few who can claim a former President of the United States helped him bring his dream to life–or at least, offered him some advice.

In a post on business networking service LinkedIn, Agassi details how the best advice he ever received was from President Bill Clinton at a conference in 2006.

Agassi hadn’t yet started Better Place back then, and was instead thinking of selling electric cars and their batteries for around $32,000.

Speaking to Clinton, Agassi said he reckoned drivers would pay up the initial outlay for the savings they’d see over 8-12 years.
