With gas prices hovering at $1.20/litre, it's a little tingly to read about what automakers are finally doing with cars, technology and the environment.  Today's Globe and Mail has a neat announcement about California pushing the industry into the 21st century - a la plug-in cars.It's a bold move - California mandating the minimum number of hybrid, or plugin cars that manufacturers have to have sold - starting 2012.By then, gas will be at $2.50/litre ... and we will be looking for some sort of respite in travel.
This week, auto parts maker Magna joined the race to build a plug-in hybrid and said it plans to have a prototype on the road next year or in 2010.
