    When was this "article" posted ? There's no date on it. I don't think they know what they're talking about.

    I guess it is just a bad auto-generated page with stale content.
    The links to the right show "Photos of the Volvo Roadster".
    When you click there it says "3 pictures total" then offers you 2 photos of the Tesla Roadster.

    I seem to be believe a quote from Musk more than an obscure article somewhere. Still we do know that they have considered both a hybrid and a pure BEV or possibly both. This might be the same as those SUV rumors, something they are considering in the future.
    I'm hoping for a good pure BEV regardless of, if they make a hybrid or not.
