For those that haven't seen them, AutoblogGreen has a gallery of Plug-In Escape photos at the following:

...AND, in a related story, read about a proposal to have interested buyers deposit $10,000 now for the purchase of a plug-in hybrid from the Big 3 Automakers with guaranteed delivery by 2012 as a consumer-funded bail-out for Ford, GM & Chrysler. A bit radical, but it could put up to $50-billion in the hands of the desperate trio now and force them to refocus on more advanced hybrid/electric vehicle production for the near future.

Two things:

First, it is interesting that they moved the plug in recepticle to a higher location on the quarter panel than the gas filler door. Requires another quarter panel to be stocked :( . Why not just run with what you have?

Second, I don't have the $10K to deposit on a plug in hybrid. Otherwise, I would think the proposal ideal. :doh: :cry:

Anyone else?
