Finally - "take the battery with you plug-in-hybrid" design...

http://www.engadget.com/2008/04/24/miras-h4v-plugless-plug-in-hybrid-is-surprisingly-clever/

excerpt:
*****
Instead of plugging the whole car into an outlet, you can pull out any of the three battery packs in the trunk and hook 'em into the wall. That means the car doesn't have to have direct access to a plug to be able to juice up, you just take the batteries to where the power's at and commence charging.

This is something that I, as an apartment dweller, can really appreciate. and...ideally, the batteries won't weigh too much...

Best,
Shalin
