all-electric range of 40 miles = 100 MPG?

GE teams with Chrysler on plug-in hybrid system

Chrysler CEO Bob Nardelli is a former GE executive.

Plug-in hybrid power suddenly is the most talked-about advanced vehicle technology. This week, it was the subject of a major Washington conference.

The U.S. Department of Energy used the occasion to announce a relatively modest $30 million in grants to help companies develop plug-in hybrid technology. The main recipients are General Motors, Ford Motor Co. and General Electric.

GM plans to have the plug-in hybrid Chervolet Volt on the market in 2010. Toyota Motor Corp. says it will have a plug-in for fleets in 2010. Ford is deploying a small fleet of demonstration vehicles in Southern California.

A tie with deep-pocketed GE would appear to give Chrysler LLC a boost in the race.

A plug-in hybrid would have a more robust battery pack than a traditional gasoline-electric hybrid. In theory, with recharging from electrical outlets, a plug-in vehicle could operate much longer on electric-only power than other hybrids.

Proponents contend that an all-electric range of 40 miles would satisfy the daily needs of most drivers, giving them the equivalent of 100 mpg or more and dramatically cutting petroleum demands.
