A growing list of businesses are offering free, electric car charging in a move that could improve their bottom line while expanding the appeal and use of electric cars. The proposal is simple, you are waiting for your car to charge up while you browse products and services at the business offering the refueling. How would the growth in the transition to electric vehicles improve if say Tesla Motors joined with Starbucks or Dunkin’ Donuts?
Everywhere there was a major coffeehouse chain, there was also an opportunity to refuel your vehicle. It would be much like the situation today where you get free wi-fi with your drink. Baristas may experience a surge in connoisseurs of arabica with renewed interest in the public café. In this way, a broader embrace of electric vehicles may occur as their utility mingle with social convention.
