The Future of Gas Engines

Very interesting article from Automotive News (subscription required) about the future of gasoline engines. It all boils down to the fact that even the very high mileage standards proposed by the Obama administration can and will be met by a fleet comprised mostly of vehicles powered by internal combustion engines. In fact, plug-in hybrid and electric vehicle sales are expected to comprise less than 5 percent of the new-vehicle fleet by the end of this decade, small potatoes compared to the rest of the vehicle fleet.
