That's something that has not happened yet, and understandably so, it takes MANY iterations of a design concept before there is enough advancements/improvements to make it acceptable enough to the buying public for them to go that route instead of more of the same-old same-old.
And nothing like $7 a gallon gas to help that process along. In Europe it is at $10 a gallon and they have more diesel and electric offerings than us.
