First Mass Produced Plug in Hybrid Car
The F3DM, the world's first mass produced plug-in hybrid car, has gone on general sale in China.
The F3 Dual Mode made by BYD Auto has a $22,000 price tag, aimed initially at the Chinese government agencies and other corporate entities. The hybrid plugs into any normal plug socket, and has a range of 60 miles on a full charge. It fully charges in 7 hours. It can be half charged in 10 minutes at special stations. As a hybrid, it also has a 1.0 litre petrol engine that can be used to recharge the batteries when a power outlet is not available.
Many other car makers have announced plans to sell a plug-in hybrid, none have actually brought one to market, with the nearest release date not until 2010.
