“Say you were running an electric-vehicle start-up and trying to figure out how to sell your cars. You might find an instant dealer network of 1,000-plus stores pretty attractive.
At least that’s the hope of Best Buy, the Minneapolis-based retail chain.
The consumer electronics chain has been edging into electric transportation, selling Brammo electric motorcycles and winning contracts to install home chargers for the Ford Focus Electric and Mitsubishi i EVs. Best Buy will begin those installations this year.”
