I kind of like the plugin hybrids. What is the consensus here?
Enough all-electric range for most trips by many car owners, plus with no range issue by adding fuel, is a winning combination for many. Although it is the most complex powertrain configuration, the complexity disadvantage is reduced in the case of AWD, and batteries are still so expensive that a plug-in hybrid is cheaper to build than a long-range battery-electric.

This is still the right configuration for many applications.
