Is there a shift towards BEVs compared to PHEVs

While battery-powered electric vehicles (BEVs) have always been popular, historically many have made strong arguments for the greater emphasis in the short term to be focused on plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). Much of the argument in favour of plug-in hybrids has centred round the number of recharging stations around the US, for example, although […]


Not sure - PHEVs are still needed to tempt people towards BEVs.

I firmly believe that the plug in hybrid is the short term future (20 years) Although somewhat complicated the tecnology is now mature. You have electric for short range and petrol power for extended trips. The larger the vehicle the more it makes sense to me.

What about Elon Musk and his comment that EVs will be able to do 1000km per charge by 2017?

That would do the trick.

Elon Musk doesnt get much wrong - this would be a game changer!
