(Newser) – Honda is looking to make up lost ground in the market for energy-efficient cars and plans to have a plug-in hybrid and a battery-powered electric vehicle on American streets in 2012, reports Reuters. The company announced no specifics on models, other than to say the EV will be a small commuter car. "Which makes us hopeful we’ll see the retro-adorable EV-N concept in showrooms," writes Chuck Squatriglia at the Autopia blog of Wired. It gets about 140 mpg. (See photos in the gallery.)
