At the 2012 Paris Motor Show (see our preview here), which is currently underway, Porsche has unveiled a new concept plug-in hybrid which looks more production-ready than many other concept vehicles. It's called the Panamera Sport Turismo plug-in hybrid, and it can be driven in 100% electric mode for 30 km (19 miles) at speeds of up to 130 KPH (81 MPH). This means that, like the Chevy Volt, short trips can be done without burning any gasoline.
