This forum used to focus on pure BEVs. More recently, PHEV technology (in particular "series hybrids" where the ICE only ever runs a generator) have been touted as the next best thing to pure BEVs. We know Fisker is about to introduce a series hybrid using technology from Quantum. Raser has a deal in the works as well. I think Tesla has hinted at a possible deal to sell drivetrain technology to someone (perhaps to go in a hybrid). Tesla has also been saying positive things about the upcoming GM Volt series hybrid.
