Your Prius Is a Dinosaur

SDGE's new study of plug-in hybrid cars reveals that PHEV's are 60% more fuel efficient than regular hybrids and 205% more fuel efficient than regular gas guzzlers.

The PHEV's in the study got 67 mpg, and can be recharged in three hours using a 240 volt outlet. The study estimates that right now the grid could handle 4 milllion vehicles charging overnight when demand is lowest. PHEV's are expected to hit the retail market in 2010.
