Bestbuy Electric Cars/Vehicles Sell Plan

With the early development of electric vehicles and hybrids within the different automotive brands and the growing demand for diversification of comprehensive services related to such units, the retailer company selling electronics, Best Buy, wants to participate in the business of selling electric vehicles in the U.S..

Chad Bell, a manager at Best Buy who supervises the efforts of mobility and transportation, said that the company is holding talks with automotive brands to sell electric vehicles with its more than 1,100 stores in the U.S. “We probably have more traffic on a weekend week than in any car dealership in a month.” The benefits for a small automaker would be huge as the retail division would combine a broad network of services.
