A German Startup's Plan to Make E.V. Charging More Like Cell Phone Service

A startup from Germany called ubitricity is attempting to make electric car charging ubiquitous with a mobile electric meter that drivers can carry around in their trunk. The company is making its first thousand plugs available this year.

The expansion of electric cars has been anything but spectacular, and a major constraint has been a lack of charging infrastructure and “range anxiety” getting the better of consumers. Late last year luxury electric sports car manufacturer Tesla began tackling at least that perception with solar powered charging stations where Tesla drivers can charge for free.
