    Leonard, What makes you say that this will be a 3G feature? Looks like Toyota may be considering this NOW:

        Hello,

        Well that really fantastic. If it becomes possible to force the EV
        mode driving then the possibility to recharge the battery from the
        grid is even more interesting.
