Renault To Build Electric Car Plant In Israel?
Hat tip: Newman
The sooner we tell the rogue Arab oil states, and their catamites in the multinational oil companies to shove their oil up their asses, the better. And frankly, people like Ron Paul and Pat Buchanan (and their followers) are full of excrement when they whine about George Washington warning against foreign entanglements. They just can’t get it through their walnut-sized brains that depending on terrorist rogue regimes for our life-blood of oil IS A MAJOR foreign entanglement. After all, why should any other country be able to have a veto on our foreign or domestic policies?
Hopefully that will change, being that French car manufacturer Renault is considering the idea of building an electric car plant in Israel.
French carmaker Renault SA is studying a possible plan to build a manufacturing plant for electric cars in Israel, a company spokeswoman said Wednesday.
Renault is exploring a potential partnership with Israeli entrepreneur and high-tech star Shai Agassi, spokeswoman Rochelle Chimenes said.
Few details about the project have yet been released.
Agassi and his partner Iden Ofer have founded an eco-minded joint venture called the “Better Place Project,” aimed at helping reduce greenhouse emissions by building a network of charging stations for electric cars across Israel.
Agassi and Ofer are to begin testing the pilot project in early 2009, according to an article that appeared in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper.
If Renault decides to get involved, an agreement could be signed in the first half of 2008, Chimenes said.
