Yeah, but it's a plug-in to an AC outlet option. So maybe they need to have
a miles-per-kilowatt designation too?
Plugging into some outlet for maybe $ a night won't come cheap. Less
petrol in the car, but have you gained anything?

I haven't done the math myself, but I read somewhere the cost using
household electricity was equivalent to gas at .90 gallon.

Then if you top off the batteries at night the electric rates are usually
much lower at night.
