After a tumultuous year in which its founder was ousted by the board as CEO and
his replacement stepped down after only three months, electric-car company
Better Place is starting 2013 on a better note.
In January, the company
sold 102 cars, a 136 percent increase over its average monthly sales for 2012
and a dramatic improvement over its dismal December sales of just five vehicles.
The improved monthly sales, which represent 20% of the 518 total cars the
company sold in Israel last year, are the result of a new leasing arrangement.
