Why a compressed natural gas plug-in electric hybrid makes sense

John Goreham at TorqueNews.com wrote a great article asking a question that we think everyone should consider:

Since the Prius arrived about 14 years ago all of the hybrids in America have been gasoline electric. Why not marry the two cleanest methods of propulsion we have?

There is a very large group committed to doing the right thing environmentally as the Prius and other hybrids like it have proven. However, look at any electric car website, or on any forum where the battery electric vehicle (BEV) owners and fans vent and one will see that the hatred for gasoline is strong. Why not get rid of the gasoline and oil, but still have great range and solid environmental performance?
