As reported, Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard and Maine Governor Paul LePage have agreed to put 220 charging stations in Maine to add to Quebec’s 614 stations with a sufficient number in place to allow all-electric travel from Quebec City to Portland in 2017.
Meanwhile, Air Liquide and Toyota have announced a collaboration to develop fueling/charging stations for the hydrogen-electric Toyota Mirai 4-door sedan that travels 300 miles on a single charge.
Air Liquide already operates similar stations in Rotterdam, Düsseldorf, Paris, Nagoya and Toyota City.
The Maine-Quebec Committee should work with Air Liquide so that some of the battery-electric charging stations will be co-located with fuel-cell electric fill stations Air Liquide develops in the region. “Electric cars” is a phrase that means more than “battery electric cars.”
