San Francisco’s pilot project for plug-in vehicles officially launched today at City Hall with the unveiling of outlet stations for electric cars in the city fleet.

The “Smartlet Networked Charging Stations” will allow plug-in fleet and car-share vehicles to recharge while their drivers are working nearby.

The city and Coluomb Technologies, maker of the plug-in stations, partnered on the two-year project to showcase how driving electric vehicles needn’t sacrifice convenience, and can maximize range, when daytime plug-in options are available.
