The next generation of electric vehicles is here with the plug-in hybrids Chevy Volt, Nissan Leaf and Tesla Roadster hitting showrooms for the coming year. More traditional hybrids have been available for years but they don’t require the infrastructure plug-in hybrids would need to recharge for longer distance driving. We’ll look at the latest electric cars and talk about how feasible it will be to provide infrastructure. We’ll also test drive an Electric Tesla Roadster (pictured above.)
