Plug-in hybrids are getting a lot of news lately, and Volvo is the latest to make an announcement. Teaming up with Swedish energy company Vattenfall, the car maker plans a 2012 plug-in hybrid. Vattenfall itself plans to generate the electricity sustainably.
   The companies say that the plug-in hybrids would cost €3 per 100 km for families, and fuel consumption would drop to 2 l/100 km (118 mpg). The battery takes around five hours to charge, and it is also charged when the brakes are applied.
