    I figured it would be around the same time as the Prius plug-in. Makes sense to offer it for the CT too.

    The range on the Prius hybrid is pretty limited. Nothing like the Leaf in terms of all-electric range.

    I might wait for a plug-in.
    There will be few options next year so I hope they will come up with a completive price.
    On another subject, Russians are coming up with an interesting technology in their Yo-mobile, definitely more practical in winter time than GM Volt.

    So this didn't happen at least as of yet. The prius plug in is so weak it doesn't come close to justifying the price. I don't get how a company like Tesla can make amazing cars that get 200 mile+ ranges on pure electric and the other automakers can't make a plug in hybrid that comes even near a fraction of that.

    Toyota has a partnership with Tesla - throw some of the tesla motors and batteries in to a CT...

    Maybe because it is a Lotus Elise and will continue to be one until they run out of the Lotus Elise bodies they bought from Lotus sometime this year.

    It's not a Lotus Elise. It uses the same technology for the chassis (extruded aluminium sections bonded and riveted together), but the dimensions are different. Especially the rear section, behind the passenger compartment, is longer to accommodate the battery pack. The body is completely different. Tesla did not buy bodies from Lotus - Lotus built complete gliders for Tesla, which were then fitted with drive unit and battery pack by Tesla. Only six percent of parts are shared between Lotus Elise and Tesla Roadster.

    See also Wikipedia.
