Here is a look at what is happening in the electric drive world.
- Tesla Motors Working With Panasonic. Now that Panasonic has been cleared to merge Sanyo into its core business, it has not wasted any time to announce a partnership with Tesla Motors on the next generation battery cells, according to EarthTimes.

- Cleantec Energy Stocks 2010. If 2009 is anything to gauge, 2010 should see cleantec energy stocks go up, according to RechargeNews. It makes sense as investors look for the next big thing. Hopefully, this around they will not kill the golden goose.

Equally important, not every region or everyone will benefit the same by adopting it early. A recent study by Energy Policy came to the conclusion that giving consumers who live and drive in regions where the social benefits of electric–boosted cars are strongest, and recognizing the circumstances of consumers – such as their income, life stage and family size – gives PHEVs a better shot at both sales and environmental and energy security effectiveness, via EurekaAlerts.
