I won't worry about this too much. Just check out all the PHEV options available today that you can actually BUY!
There is a Kia Optima PHEV that might join my fleet soon as the price is too good to pass up. 13,000 miles, loaded for only 14k w warranty transfer! But I'm crazy in my Jay Leno wannabe collector status so ignore my compulsion.
Just the market forces doin' its thing. its not like the 90s ladies and gentlemen, no more Lease, suspend and send to the CRUSHER. Global forces will keep our beloved energy efficient vehicles still comin'!
LOL i feel bad for the those financing 65K jacked rigs right now on subprime loans at ridiculously long terms. They started to bitch when gas when from 2 bucks a gallon to 2.29 when Harvy hits, whats it gonna be when the next recession hits, HAHA
I always remember the day I flipped 1997 Toyota Tercil w 456K miles when gas prices were hovering over 4 dollars. I made 4K on that deal, on a car that got around 33 to 35 if you babied it.
EV, PHEV, etc are here to stay despite the short term thinking of the mindless consuming masses
