As more and more plug-in cars become available in Australia, set aside time to take a spin in several of them.

The video begins with this Toyota Prius, however this is the ordinary non-plug-in version and then the drivers switch to the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV, Holden Volt (brother of Chevrolet Volt) and Nissan LEAF.

Lastly, comes to the BMW i8 and finds out that its EV range is short and with such a high level of performance, states that it will be hard to save on gas even with economical driving.

No Tesla Model S this time, despite Tesla launching sales and a Supercharging network in Australia.
