Volvo’s electric/diesel car for 2012

Maddeningly short of details, is this announcement that Volvo (the car company, not the equipment company) has set up a joint venture to develop electric diesel cars in 2012 that will plug into ordinary household sockets. Stay tuned for more details. The race for electric car supremacy is getting interesting.

Volvo, the equipment company, is well on the way towards producing an electric-diesel hybrid wheel loader, as Equipment World reported in some detail back in January.
