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.

Soon those of us who are curious can find out.

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