Toyota has introduced the first plug-in hybrid in the UK. The car has batteries, a small petrol engine and can be plugged into the mains to top off the batteries. According to BBC News, the launch of the new hybrid could change how drivers in the UK spend money on automotive fuel.

Electric companies in the UK are putting up "Juice points" which are charging stations for hybrid vehicles near parking areas for hybrids and electric vehicles to recharge. The test version of the car can only drive 6 miles before the batteries are dead and the petrol engine fires up.
There is no word on when the plug-in hybrid will be available to purchase or the price it may sell for. With improvements in battery technology, the plug-in hybrid should be able to increase its all-electric driving range over the paltry 6 miles offered now.
