    There might be hope for VW yet, at first they publicly said Fuel Cells are dumb and now this. I was a bit worried when they sounded like they were going to focus on PHEV but it seems like they are finally getting it. Probably attended The D event.

    PHEVs are a bridge. Fuel Cells are a pier... and Toyota is going off the end.

    Didn't VW also say that is a few years we would see EVs with 300 mile range.
    That was the day before the 'D' announcement of the 295mile range S85D

    Maybe they meant we'd see 300 mile range EV's from a "real" auto maker :)
