Spain faces challenges to electric car industry

Source: Reuters - Wed 10th Feb 2010

The European Union faces challenges of safety, cost, competitiveness and technological harmonization in its plan to successfully develop its electric car industry, EU presidency holder Spain said on Tuesday.

"Obviously there are lots of questions ... issues of legal security, validation, the safety of the vehicles themselves ... and cost," Spain's industry minister Miguel Sebastian said at a news conference after a meeting with European counterparts.

EU industry ministers gathered in northern Spain ahead of an action plan for European electric vehicle industry expected in May, and saw an exhibition of 15 models of electric cars and prototypes which are being developed in Europe.
