Spain’s plans to have 2,000 electric cars on the road by the end of 2010 appears way off target as figures showed just 16 have been sold so far, all THINK City EVs.
In April, Spanish government said it would invest 590m euros ($775m) in the production of electric cars over the next two years.
The government’s plan includes a subsidy for the purchase price of an electric car amounting up to a EUR 6,000.
It aims to have 250,000 electric and hybrid cars in circulation by 2014.
Next year’s target had been to get 20,000 hybrid and electric cars on the road.[source: AP]
