Vermont and Quebec plan an electric car corridor between Burlington and Montreal

A series of electric car charging stations are being planned along the 138-mile route between Burlington, Vt., and Montreal, according to an announcement by Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin and Quebec Premier Pauline Marois. Initially the corridor will have more than 20 charging stations along the route, although it's expected the number will increase.
A story from Canadian Broadcast Corpo. (here) notes "Quebec already has a network of 300 terminals in operation through Hydro-Quebec and the private Reseauver company."
The longest report I could find is here, from EV World, a publication about electric vehicles. It says "the 138-mile corridor which includes I-89 and Highway A-10, Rte 104 and Rte 133, is expected to open this fall."
What about wireless car charging? "Bosch and Evatran ... have inked an agreement to bring the Plugless Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging System to consumers" reports GreenTech media. It would cost $3,000, however, so don't get too excited you penny-pinching Nissan Leaf owners.
