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 talk about how Amazon.com and other retailers are hopping on the electric vehicle bandwagon. Walgreen will install stations at many locations, and Amazon is starting to sell GE's WattStation (an electric vehicle in-home charging station) through its website just like any other item. This could address the biggest complaint about electric vehicles to date, which has been their slow charging time and limited availability of stations.
