The trucks you are refering to do not require a recharge from an outside power source, the batteries are recharged by the vehicle engine. I have heard that these vehicles are not the best choice if you are towing a trailer. I don't know about the current models, but the early units did not have a reverse gear in the transmission and depended on the electric motor to back up. Fine until you try and back a heavy boat or camper uphill!
The true plug-in vehicles that are just now making it to market in significant numbers are really only suitable for short range driving. The amount of electricity required to recharge these vehicles shouldn't be a problem in most areas, the recharging will be mostly done at night during off-peak times. Tom
