I still say hybrids would be better as diesel electric instead of gas electric. Especially the Volt with it's series/parallel configuration. That was what the PNGV cars were- without the battery tech we have now. It's simple: TDI engine drives generator, generator powers electric motor. It would have to translate to about 120 mpge before it would be worth it though.
