PHEVs make a lot of sense if you have a place to plug in (especially if you plug in for free like I do) and you don't sacrifice any range so you don't have to use it as a second car like an EV.

Oh, and they're pretty fast too!

I can drive 800+ miles all electric and then take a road trip from Albuquerque to Cheyenne on one tank of gas.
