Era of the electric car?

Electric cars have been in the news with China recently announcing their "vow" to take over the lead in this market. Now our neighboring state is in the news - both Nissan and Th!nk have been expressing an interest in the state. Nissan will introduce its 2010 electirc car in OR and Th!nk is looking at site options. And now Mitsubishi has announced their plans for a strategic partnership with OR. Read details of the story here

If you are wondering what caused this recent flurry of planning and activity in electric car manufacturing - which has not enjoyed much attention in the past -  it is this announcement from the government: electric cars get a $2.4 billion grant

What do these upcoming techonological innovations in transportations mean for the future of cities?
