The Market for Electric Cars in the US
In the US, the market for electric cars was at a nascent stage as of 2009, with hybrid car sales occupying a major share among the different types of electric cars. As of 2009, many major automakers such as General Motors, Toyota Motor Corporation, and Nissan were planning to mass produce electric cars by 2011. Only a few small automakers were marketing pure electric cars in the US as of 2009, notable among those being Tesla Motors, Inc with its ‘Roadster’ priced at over US$ 100,000. In addition, the US electric car market offered export opportunities to many automakers in other countries such as China.
