Car Charging Group, Inc. Announces International Expansion and Formation of Car Charging International, LLC

MIAMI BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - February 10, 2010) - Car Charging Group, Inc. (OTCBB: CCGI), a company dedicated to a clean and sustainable environment through the development of an Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure that will be compatible with all electric vehicles, today announced its intention to expand into the International market via the formation of Car Charging International, LLC. This International expansion will augment the Company's aggressive domestic rollout of electric car charging stations.

"We believe it is very clear that electric vehicles will play an increasing role on the international scene. While significant strides have been made in the International EV market relative to standardization and battery performance, the lack of a pre-existing operational infrastructure for charging systems remains a major obstacle to mass-market adoption. This creates an excellent opportunity for our new subsidiary Car Charging International, LLC," commented Andy Kinard, President of Car Charging Group, Inc. "With electric vehicle production at the head of auto manufacturers' plans to comply with new emissions regulations as well as the exorbitant cost of fuel, we believe the market for charging stations will be especially robust over the coming years."

Car Charging is anticipating the arrival of electric vehicles and believes that it is at the forefront of the electric vehicle revolution. The Company is at the head of the transition period from gas-powered automobiles to electric vehicles. The arrival of electric vehicles requires the construction of a network of geographically dispersed charging stations that will provide ready access to electricity and alleviate consumers' "range anxiety" fears.
