Even Without Shai Agassi, Better Place Offers a Great Deal

Despite press attention, Better Place has not told a competent story to Israelis.

Knowing what I know today I’d still buy my car. I’d take that chance. If I was thinking about taking out a lease, I’d only ask what happens if the company is unable to continue giving service: can you terminate with no penalty and walk away? If that is the case I would take the ₪1990 deal on the table right now.

On Monday night my wife and I picked up an old friend and his wife who are visiting from London. We drove 1 hr to Jerusalem, switching on the way. Picked them up at the American Colony Hotel where I answered questions from Arab taxi drivers. We drove across Jerusalem, parked (in Mamilla mall with charge spots but all were blocked). After a meal, back to their hotel and then back to Tel Aviv without switching. Arrived home with 8%. 160km of driving. Easy, fast quiet. Just another easy drive into a better future.

On Monday, electric car company Better Place announced that Shai Agassi, up to now the face and driving force behind Better Place, was stepping back from his CEO rôle and would continue on as a member of the board and major shareholder. Evan Thornley, Better Place’s CEO in Australia, is stepping up to the global rôle. The news seemed to come out of the blue.

If Israeli electric car company, Better Place, only gave the world an electric car that could switch an empty battery for a full one in five minutes that would have been enough! But Better Place is also the key to making renewable energy production practical all over the world. Dai aynu!
