AAA (the American Automobile Association) has announced the nation’s first mobile electric vehicle charging unit in its roadside assistance trucks. Worrying about using up a vehicle’s power supply while on the road (called ‘Range anxiety’) is one of the major barriers that has been cited as stopping motorists buying electric cars.

These latest additions to the AAA’s fleet will be unveiled at the Plug-In 2011 Conference & Exposition next month, where full details and deployment plans will be announced. The rapid-charging vehicles will then begin testing in August in a few states including Oregan, Washington and California.
