Plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (“plug-in hybrids”) can achieve 70 -100 miles per gallon, quadrupling the fuel economy of the average car on the road today (~20 mpg).

Even if they’re somewhat behind the times vis-a-vis fuel efficiency in Europe. A friend of mine has a 6 year old Toyota Yaris Verso. It does about 60MPG without any of this fancy hybrid stuff.
