The Peapod: Not Exactly The Plugin Hybrid We Want

I have to give GreenEcoMobility, a Chrysler company, some credit for coming up with a plug-in hybrid called the Peapod. It’s a start, but barely.

The car comes in 2, 4, and 6 person models. Takes 6 hours to charge on a standard 110v plug. The range is about 30 miles with a top speed of 25 mph. Around here, I’d be getting my ass run over if I drove that slow!

Theoretically, it will be in production in 2009, but is this the right car? Need about thrice the speed and range. Then we’re talking something I might buy.
