MINI E vs. Better Place
I have been reading about the electric car charging network utility startup called Better Place for a few months now. And today I heard a good interview with Shai Agassi on the NPR program On Point , and given the radical-yet-obvious approach he is taking, I am beginning to wonder if the MINI E approach is going to be a non-starter. On first impressions, Better Place makes a lot of sense with the cell phone subscription model and the swap-out-the-battery model. And the goal of making the cars affordable.
So, why am I pursuing this MINI E trial at great expense? Hmmm… well, it is going to be fun, I am sure.
