Walgreens charges forward with electric vehicle filling station expansion in Fla.
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Walgreens and Car Charging Group on Monday announced the expansion of EV charging services to 13 Walgreens locations in Orlando and Tampa/St. Petersburg, Fla.
"Walgreens dedication to the EV movement is unmatched by any other major retailer," Car Charging Group CEO Michael Farkas said.

The two companies plan to broaden their EV charging services with more locations in major metropolitan cities in Florida, as well as in other cities, including Phoenix; Akron, Canton and Columbus in Ohio; and Austin, Texas.
Walgreens has made a concentrated effort to becoming a destination site for EV drivers seeking to top off their battery while shopping or commuting.
Electric vehicles already on the market include the Nissan Leaf, the Chevy Volt and the BMW ActiveE. EV drivers soon will be able to purchase a wider variety of cars, including the Ford Focus electric, which should start shipping next month, as well as the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid, the Honda Fit EV, and the Tesla Model S that are forecasted to be due out in June.
Who are the electricians or mechanics which discovered an expensive electric vehicle?
Electric vehicles are really getting trendy nowadays and car manufacturers are focusing on this since most of the people nowadays are more heath conscious. My friend was convinced to buy the new Toyota prius plug-in hybrid for its high performance and advantages on the planet. Good thing there are plenty of available toyota parts shop around, he would not have a hard time finding parts for his car.
