Cracker Barrel Restaurants to Offer Charging Stations for EVs

December 3, 2010

This per the Nashville Tennessean.

LEBANON, Tenn. — Cracker Barrel, modeled to represent a slower time of rocking chairs on old wooden porches, soon will feature a very modern technology — electric vehicle chargers.

Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. has launched a pilot project in which it will install electric vehicle chargers, provided by Ecotality Inc., at 24 restaurants across Tennessee.

The pilot is part of a broader effort by Ecotality, based in Tempe, Ariz., to get charging stations in more places across the country. The lack of charging stations and the high cost of vehicles are major hurdles to the spread of electric vehicle technology.
