Despite many options and generous subsidies, only 52,835 of the 14.5 million cars sold in the U.S. in 2012 were EVs or plug-in hybrids.  The good news is that the numbers are quickly growing.  I sat down with Brett Hauser, President of Greenlots and Founder of Open Charge Alliance  to answer the question “what will it take to put 1 million EVs on the road by 2017?”
