German Chancellor Angela Merkel has launched a "national platform for electric mobility" that plans to have one million electric vehicles on the road in Germany by 2020.
With several domestic manufacturers all working in this direction, such a goal does not seem too far fetched. BMW, Mercedes and Audi have all been moving forward with their own electric vehicle plans.
BMW BMW AG's chief executive Norbert Reithofer says Germany is well positioned to become a technology leader in that market.
"To make this happen, our leaders in politics and industry have to be pulling in the same direction." said Reithofer.
