Thought of the Day: Plug-in Hybrid Love (or is it Hate?)

Welcome to Thought of the Day! Join Nikki Gordon-Bloomfield as she poses a question for you all to think about and answer.

Today, following last week’s release of official fuel economy figures for the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan, we’re asking if the electric vehicle world are just a little too mean toward plug-in hybrid and range-extended EV owners. From bemoaning those who own a 20-30 mile plug-in hybrid to those who say they’re not real EVs, we’ve seen lots of hate aimed towards those who don’t drive a purely electric vehicle.

Is that a justified response? Or an immature one? And shouldn’t we be nicer to any car with a plug? Watch the video above, and leave your thoughts in the Comments below.
