Now that we've straightened out our wheels, one additional comment: we hope what we expect will be an enthusiastic reaction to the ReCharge at the Frankfurt show and in the media will encourage Ford to become a more energetic competitor in the race to mass-produce the first and the best PHEVs.

Today high-traffic websites and blogs like Jalopnik­cars/­frankfurt-auto-show/­

are sounding both enthusiastic about the idea, and skeptical about reports that Volvo could say today what it might produce in 2015 (the 1-minute Volvo video at Jalopnik is better seen at AutoBlogGreen).
