Ever since news of the Volvo ReCharge plug-in series hybrid came out, we've been hankering for the Swedish EV to make its way into production. The all-wheel drive propulsion will be provided courtesy of wheel motors at all four corners with juice coming from a lithium polymer battery pack mounted in the trunk with sufficient capacity for 62 miles of electric driving. Once the battery state of charge dips to thirty percent, a 1.6L four cylinder flex-fuel engine bolted to a generator starts up to re-charge the battery. Volvo says that the ReCharge can do a 93 mile drive on 2.8L of gas, which comes out to 124mpg (U.S.). That sounds perfect, we'll take it.

On to Number 9.
