ABG POLL RESULTS: Powertrain Technologies

On the 29th January we posed the question "Which powertrain technology will your 2010 model year passenger vehicle run on?", and asked you to vote for your favourite answer.

After receiving 447 votes, the results are in and it looks like plug-in electric with petrol range extending - such as the E-Flex Chevy Volt was the clear favourite. Two other powertrain technologies fought it out for second place, Clean diesel and Diesel-electric hybrid. The rest of the field was further back.

Analysis: I'm doubtful diesel will have such a strong showing in two years. Perhaps what we need then is a plug-in electric with diesel range extending - a clean diesel take on the GM E-Flex platform if you will.
