Plug-In Hybrids

I'm excited about the possibility of my next car being a plug-in hybrid, which could be on the market in mass quantities in the U.S. by 2010. That means I'll have a few more years to drive my gas-sucking 2004 Mercury Mountaineer, which logged a less-than-impressive 13 mpg over 200 miles at my last fillup.

Plug-in hybrid technology which uses an electric battery powered motor that is charged overnight, relying on flex-fuel technology to recharge batteries only on trips that exceed the range of the batteries. I'm excited about plug-in hybrids, because I'm convinced that this is a great idea. Even a gasoholic like me would make the switch if the vehicles are no-comprise.
