Some pretty big news on the EV front today. Daimler said it’s eyeing some potential cities in China for an electric version of its Smart Car. Toyota’s making a bigger splash by announcing that the automaker is prepping a plug-in Prius to go on sale in 2011. The fact that the go-to brand for hybrids is committing to bring “several tens of thousands” of the cars to market should help to light a fire under some EV charging infrastructure plans.
