Roadside Assistance Now Available For Electric Cars

January 22nd, 2012

If you’ve been pondering the purchase of an electric car, but were hesitant due to the lack of infrastructure to charge them and service them, you may be one step closer to getting the proper coverage you need. AAA is now starting to offer roadside assistance for these vehicles. They now have numerous service trucks that will be able to charge these increasingly popular vehicles. They have fast chargers that will be able to charge these cars in a rapid time frame. For now, they are just deploying these trucks in some major metropolitan areas across the country. Pending the popularity of this new pilot program, they may plan to increase  the range in which they offer this service. The service  trucks contain a lithium Ion battery capable of charging  most of these automobiles. Charge times will range from 10 to 15 minutes, which should allow the driver to get up to 15 additional miles to reach home, or a charging station.
What about you? Would this news help convince you to finally give in and get an electric car?
