*Editor's Note ===========================================*
I hope that your holidays were joyful and electric. On a personal note,
my family and I were able to take our Nissan Leaf from Beaverton to
Woodburn to visit with our extended family during the holiday. Starting
with a full charge and a few hours on their outdoor 120V outlet is all
that we needed to make it there and back at freeway speed on I-5
with the heater & defroster on.

*Top Story ==============================================*
o US sales of plug-in vehicles soars in 2012. Up 238% over 2011.
   Driven primary by more choices & strong PHEV demand, more than
   41 thousand new PEVs are on the road. That is 41k vehicles using
   little or no foreign oil and 41k people that are showing their friends,
   family, neighbors, & coworkers that PEVs are here and can get the
   job done!  http://goo.gl/Wjs6L
