The Great Electric-Vehicle Race

Thumbnail A friendly electric-vehicle race has developed between Portland Mayor Sam Adams and San Francisco Mayor (and California gubernatorial candidate) Gavin Newsom. It might not be as exciting as a race to the moon, but it might prove more environmentally significant. The prize at stake? The title of “EV capital of the world.”

Via posts on Gas 2.0, Mayor Newsom and Mayor Adams have recently outlined their plans to roll out the world's first plug-in charging grid in their respective cities. They’ve promised huge investments in technology and corporate partnerships so that their municipalities will be wired and ready to go when electric cars finally start flying off assembly lines.  Who'll get there first?
