This I brilliant and works very well in cities.I visited Norway this summer and the streets are planned in a way that have multiple electric vehicle charging stations.There is also free street parking for electric vehicles in Norway.Tesla is heavily subsidised in Norway too!Time for other countries in the world to take this example!
