As the range-anxiety issue seems to be an excuse to impose some inherently inefficient designs in order to provide space for a larger battery pack, such as SUVs, the "sustainability" aspect becomes harder to justify, considering how a smaller general-purpose vehicle would make more sense overall. So, a hybrid may ultimately be way more reasonable, either plug-in or not, also considering how it can eventually rely on capacitors instead of batteries or complementary to them.
