New York City to Survey Drivers About Switching to Electric Cars

Tom Ludwick

New York City is getting ready to poll 2000 drivers to see if they would be willing to switch to an electric vehicle. The city will evaluate whether or not it should start working with EV automakers and start building charging stations.

According to documents released this week, the city's Economic Development Corp. is looking for a group to perform a fast-track study "on the set of levers to encourage electric-vehicle adoption." New York is one of many cities around the country that could soon join the clean-vehicle movement.

The city hopes to complete the study by September 30. According to Rohit Aggarwala, Mayor Bloomberg's adviser on green issues, if New York builds facilities for electric vehicles, they would be open to the public.
