With both the Leaf and the Volt among many others is the hybrid technology still needed? A reciprocating car engine (Some stationary diesel engines have good efficiency) with exhaust temperatures of 1800 F (980 c) is a inefficient converter of chemical potential energy into mechanical energy.
The take away of the EV is the range. Will the EV ever have a range that will make it popular with the users?
I think both are good technologies and I don't intend to say either are bad. I am interested to see what others think.
It will be interesting and see it what is the future holds.
