Putin Supports Prokhorov Plan for "E-Car"

In another indication Mikhail Prokhorov is becoming Russia's favorite oligarch, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has asked "relevant ministries and government agencies" to quickly approve Prokhorov's plan to build small, electric-powered plastic cars. Prokhorov has no experience in the automotive business, but has investments in energy. The car would be built by Onexim, the same company that will own the Nets.
