Using Hybrids as cross-overs will work even better when we start seeing plug-in Hybrids.Originally posted by: Genx87
Not sure what a long term solution is. Possible electric but I think Hybrids are a good cross over technology for the next few decades.
The Volt looks like a good concept. 40-60 miles on battery then a gas engine fires up for anything longer. That way you can get longevity out of the car if you need it while being able to drive around the city without expending any gasoline.
I think it goes 200 miles on one charge and can fully charge in 3-4 hours.
Sure the thing is 100K but in a few years time if we keep improving the battery technology these could be practical for everyone.
