How many times has the AAA saved your butt when your car needed a boost? Owners of electric vehicles will be happy to hear that someone’s got their back as well, as the AAA is set to launch mobile charging units in select locations throughout the U.S.

Following in the footsteps of the Japan Automobile Federation (JAF) and Nissan’s joint project to bring charges to electric cars, AAA is unveiling the details of its new full production level-two and level-three electric vehicle mobile charging units at the Plug-In 2011 Conference & Exposition in Raleigh, North Carolina. At the conference, they’ll be revealing where these units will be rolled out. And if all goes well, you can expect these mobile charging units to expand beyond the initial six regions.

This is a great idea and will certainly offer electric car drivers extra peace of mind while out on the roads. And the idea is catching on – in fact, Australia’s Club Assist and Switzerland’s Nation-E have already released similar services.

Would services like these make you more inclined to buy an electric vehicle? Let us know in the comments section below.
