If they evolve to a point where the consensus among leading industry trade bodies is to count these mild hybrids as true HEVs, I'm all for it. However, it might be that plug-ins proliferate quickly enough that such evolution never has time to occur. We are already looking at a PHEV heavy lineup from BMW for the coming generation, and others are heading the same direction. As the end of the decade rolls around and we are onto the generation after that, we may be facing rapidly depleting demand for zero-electric-range combustion vehicles.
