Plugged Into the Future
If there’s a vehicle that is red-hot in our globally warming world, it’s the plug-in hybrid.
The best-known hybrid, Toyota’s Prius, is now 10 years old and has sold more than 800 000 units worldwide. It is available in South Africa, where about 20 vehicles are sold on average each month.
Hybrids, so-called because they have both an electrical and conventional fuel engine, are big business now and any number of manufacturers in the United States and Europe are offering hybrid options. Every Volkswagen sold in Europe next year will come with a hybrid option. Honda intends offering a hybrid in South Africa next year.
