Denver named the "Most Electric Vehicle-Ready Cities"
Denver was named today as one of the “most electric vehicle-ready cities” in the United States by Ford. Ford said the city has developed a plan to allow quick turnaround for private individuals or businesses to obtain permits to install vehicle charging stations. Denver is participating in a U.S.-China “EcoPartnership” sponsored by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The partnership includes the city of Denver, Ford Motor Company, the city of Chongquing, and Chang’an Motors. This partnership has, according to the Treasury Department, “the potential to significantly advance the global development of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.”
