Plug-in-hybrid? That's a new one on me. From what I see, it just 
combines the disadvantages of hybrids and all-electric vehicles. 
Obviously someone thinks it's a good idea.

On a different tack: how come compressed air hybrids get so little media 
coverage? They're said to be more efficient than battery hybrids, under 
some conditions. Not sexy enough?
