Plug-in cars may be reality in 2010

Fingers crossed, we could all have the choice of driving a plug-in electric vehicle by 2010.

General Motors is promising to produce tens of thousands of its Chevrolet Volt in its first year of production.

You can also expect global rival Toyota to compete with a plug-in version of its popular hybrid electric-gas powered Prius, the icon of green power.

Will it be a smooth takeoff for these revolutionary vehicles, which are projected to cost less than $25,000?

Well, there is a lot of finger-crossing and prayer involved over at GM.

It would appear both companies have their development of a light, high-storage lithium-ion battery on the fast track.
