Plug-in hybrid vehicles growing in popularity

There is something about the idea of plugging in my vehicle that just doesn’t seem right.

Maybe it’s because I like to think of myself as a “man’s man” and I need that smell of exhaust fumes and to hear the rumble of the engine.

But after spending a few days at the North American International Auto Show last week I am now a changed man (or is it a charged man?) Especially after James Bell, head of consumer affairs for General Motors, told me there is technology available that would make the Spark EV sound like the new Corvette Z06 I was all in.

Now there is still quite a bit of hesitation from consumers regarding the electric vehicle and plug-in hybrid, price point and longevity of battery life being two of them, but they are here to stay.

Bell said the industry is in the “first inning of a long baseball game,” and with the pressure to raise fuel economy and reduce emissions, the best way to do that is by not turning on the gas engine.
