One Plug to Charge Them All

A friendly fight over standards in the plug market for electric cars appears to be brewing, according to a NYT article this morning.

WITH electric cars and plug-in hybrids at last trickling into the showrooms of mainstream automakers, the dream of going gasoline-free is becoming a reality for many drivers. Cars like the Nissan Leaf and the Chevrolet Volt can cover considerable distances under electric power alone — certainly enough for local errands and even most daily commutes — while enabling their owners to shun gas stations.

The multi-media portoin of the article is good stuff — I suspect similar pictures will be featured in an STS article sometime soon…
