    Yeah this is a zombie threat, but it seemed like the complaining - understandably, was due to extremely paltry ev range of the cars chosen to become plug-ins. Maybe also how they handled their (equivalence to) charge sustain mode. That guess is in part based on the fact that the OP's hack job didn't include the Chrysler Pacifica minivan, which still gets 30+ mpg Blended - once it's 33EV mile range is depleted. It also corroborates the complete & typical BS factor of post # 3.

    UK also applies VAT at 25% before adding new car tax on top of that.

    Yeah. A few more surgeries than I'd have liked and stil not recovered, but better than pushin' the daisies up I guess.
