It's alternative on an off-grid, self-sustaining small scale, but on the national grid scale, it's just a fart in a jacuzzi...

The New VW Golf GTE Hybrid
Looks impressive, I particularly like the choice of propulsion, including the 20-31 mile range using battery only
Economy/CO2: 166mpg/35g/km
Price: £33,035 (£28,035 inc Gov. grant)

VW has announced a new focus on plug-in hybrid technology as it slashes investment costs following the diesel emissions scandal.
VW said its plans also included accelerating the development of a "standardised electric architecture" for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, with the next generation of the VW Phaeton becoming an electric car only.

I wonder how many miles that will do at top whack speed
Just to add
Cost of the electric Golf from £31,325
Cost of standard Golf from £17,595
That is a heck of a lot of money for being able to brag about being green and low fuel consumption  Crazy

Depends on if you remember to plug it in overnight !
I suppose it could be linked to the cars' seat warmers, and heated windows & mirrors, for a toasty start on a cold Winters morning !
Or any Cold morning for that matter...

It would also need a heck of a lot of gullibility to believe VW's figures currently.
