The problem with surveys that ask drivers if they would be interested in a plug in hybrid or an electric vehicle or a car that gets over 100 MPGe is that they usually stop there. Of course most people are are interested in a car that gets over 100 MPGe; who in their right mind wouldn't be interested. That's like asking if you would be interested in ice cream you could eat as much as you want of without gaining weight
The more important question is whether consumers would be willing to pay $35-40,000 for a mainstream compact or midsize car that normally costs $25-30,000. Then the interest level drops off dramatically.
