MORE ON CHRYSLER’S PLUG-IN HYBRID PLANS: “Press didn’t elaborate on a timeline for releasing the plug-ins — which further makes us wonder how real they are — but Reuters says Envi should have its first product in showrooms within three to five years. According to Chrysler spokesman Nick Cappa, the first vehicles out of Envi will have an electric-only range of 40 miles. Considering the Chevrolet Volt is on track to hit dealerships by the end of 2010 and just about everyone else is working on plug-ins and EVs, Chrysler may once again be so late to the party that the hosts already have passed out. Of course, that might be when the party’s just getting good.”
