It is a sad story at the end… Better Place started to make the world a bit better and cleaner by using electricity instead of a combustion engine [A world without Gas]. The underlaying business model was to build the infrastructure (batteries, switching stations etc). A Better Place wanted to start in smaller countries first, just to demonstrate their ability and to lower the introductory hurdle in regards to costs. (target had been Hawaii, Israel, Denmark and Japan)
But it doesn’t look good for the company … The pilot in Hawaii got sold out, the Israel part is giving up. So it seems that after a couple of years only Denmark is still in discussion for this (whereas I do not believe that this will work).
One would have hoped that this would have worked with a bit more success
