I'd have to know more about this technology, because my first thought is: I
have no desire to have to plug in (& then unplug) a car in order to recharge
it.

From what I understand of the prototype conversions, Cathy, the plug-in
version will increase mileage dramatically.  As I recall the EV range is
extended 10-fold from the present 4 miles to 40 miles.  If this is the case,
someone with less than a 40-mile round trip commute would hardly burn any
gasoline, usually just plugging the car in when they came home from work.
Moreover, if these cars can be charged using off-peak power, they could
dramatically improve the efficiency of our electric power utilities.  Check

I read one small article recently about this - & that's the number I seem to
remember - ~10X.  Which is great.  But...

  If this is the case,

But that's the thing - you may assume you're not going any place once home
from work, only to have to go out later - plug, unplug, plug, unplug.  Could
just plug it in before going to bed for the night, but... unless the car's
in an attached garage (which mine isn't; nor are many people's), would
require going outside late at night to plug in. And in the winter, that'd be
a really unwelcome chore...  I assume the people behind this have considered
the accompanying scenarios.  I hope.
.

Will prob. take a gander...
