Opinions on Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles
Respondents in an April 2006 survey were asked about a plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHEV) that can get its energy from both gasoline and from plugging into an electrical outlet. When respondents were asked if a PHEV would be good for their household, 55% answered "yes."
