San Diego Utility Rolls Out its First Electric Hybrids
Maybe the electric car isn't dead after all.
Nearly four years after General Motors canceled its pioneering EV-1 program,
pilot projects and commercial production of electric vehicles are gearing up in
San Diego County and beyond.
The latest electric cars plug into conventional power outlets. Some of them – including two that will be unveiled today in San Diego – can travel farther than their ill-fated predecessors because they have back-up gasoline engines.
Boosters said the cars, called plug-in vehicles, can get 100 miles per gallon and recharge on about the same amount of energy it takes to run a hair dryer for five hours.
