To quote Bill Murray from Ghostbusters: "Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!"

That's pretty much our response to Fox Business anchor and long-time electric-drive vehicle basher Neil Cavuto plugging for plug-ins. Calling it "a plug-in that gets it," Cavuto recently praised the 2014 Infiniti LE electric vehicle, Green Car Reports notes.

The LE concept was unveiled at the New York Auto Show earlier this year and, this month, Nissan's luxury badge re-confirmed that it will start selling a production LE in 2014. The part that Cavuto is most enamored with is that, "it's a plug in that doesn't plug in at all!" Actually, Cavuto is wrong, since the LE does plug in when needed, it just offers wireless charging as well. The LE is expected to have slightly more power and torque than the Nissan Leaf.

Cavuto once called the Chevrolet Volt extended-range plug-in "the dumbest thing I've ever seen." Check out this video clip from last year for a highlight reel of sorts for Cavuto's diatribes against the Volt, including his bizarre belief that plug-in cars kill marriages. Speaking about the LE, he says, "I think it's a game changer. It's also a marriage-saver, because no longer will couples have to fight over who forgot to plug in the electric car."
