Israel to get 500k electric car plug points

Israel to get 500k electric car plug points
A network of 500,000 electric car charging points is to span the width and breadth of Israel by the time the first electrical cars are marketed in the country.

US-based Better Place, has signed a deal to install the recharge points in Israel, beginning with a trial run in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Jerusalem of 500 points.

By 2021 it expects to have half a million posts in place so motorists can have confidence that they will not get stuck while on the road.

Moshe Kaplinsky, the head of Better Place Israel said it was time to "stop this addiction to oil".

He added: "Unfortunately a great part of the resources of oil are held by countries that don't share the same values we cherish in the western civilisation where we live. The gap is very clear between the price of producing a barrel of oil and the price that it sells for on the world market. And in some places these profits finance terror."

The Committee on Climate Change's report, Building a Low Carbon Economy, stressed the importance of switching motorists to cleaner vehicles.
