The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which Brendan Byrnes, industrials editor and analyst, and Austin Smith, consumer goods editor and analyst, discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, they discuss how Amazon.com is starting to sell GE's WattStation (an electric vehicle in-home charging station) through its website, just like any other item. This could help address one of the biggest complaints about electric vehicles to date: their slow charging time and limited availability of stations. We also take a look at the future of electric vehicles, such as Ford's upcoming (and fast-charging) electric Focus, which is expected to be the first car with a back seat to earn an EPA 100+ MPG equivalent distinction.
