From The New York Times:

Sites to Refuel Electric Cars Gain a Big Dose of Funds

The infusion of cash is a vote of confidence for Better Place, the
closely watched start-up that hopes to create vast networks of charge
spots for electric vehicles.

Better Place has taken on a big role in the industry. I appreciate
the analysis they've done on where to locate the initial sites which
countries are most receptive to electric vehicles.

The key weakness I still see is having a big enough fleet set up from
day one. I still say that a postoffice or taxi fleet would be the best
way to get to scale quickly.

But each report I read focuses on the consumer market. It doesn't mean
that they can't or won't shift focus in the coming years. But until or
unless I start to see the address the entire transportation situation,
I have the fear that they've fallen in love with the one vision and
have no room for flexibility.
