DETROIT – General Motors will likely unveil a prototype plug-in hybrid at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in January, according to the Detroit News. The advanced technology vehicle would have an extended driving range on battery power and would also have a diesel or gasoline engine that could power the car when the battery was low, the Detroit News said, citing unnamed GM officials. Plug-in hybrids are gas-electric vehicles that can recharge their batteries with an extension cord and a normal wall outlet.
