Dutch gas stations: Stop charging electric cars here.

Although the Netherlands has built up a reputation for being an electric car-friendly location, Dutch gas stations are not happy: they’re suing the state to try to prevent third parties from operating electric car charging points at gas stations.

An electric charging station stands in Montpelier, Vt. in June 2013. Dutch gas stations are suing the government to prevent third parties from creating charging points for electric cars at freeway service station locations.

Remember all that stuff we said recently about The Netherlands being a haven for electric vehicles?

Maybe knock a few degrees of conviction off that statement, as it seems not everyone in the European country is as keen on electric vehicles as some.

Companies operating regular gasoline and diesel filling stations certainly aren’t keen. So much so, that NOS reports they’re filing a lawsuit against the Dutch state to prevent third parties from operating charging points at freeway service station locations.
