    Hi all! I'm considering a PHEV but I have a townhouse with no garage. My neighbor has a diesel truck that they plug in during the winter and they say they've never had issues. Is there anyone out there who has a PHEV and lives in a similar situation? Very interested in your experiences and thoughts!

    You can charge with a regular 120v plug, albeit slowly. I charged my Volt for the 1st 6 months this way. I think it took 12 hours to get 60miles of range.

    Driveway or street parking? As long as there is an outlet nearby you should be fine (or perhaps you can add one). I charge only at 120V, which is fine for me. 240V is faster and more efficient if you have that available. If you can't consistently charge at home, a longer range BEV might be a better option than a PHEV, since you could use public charging about once per week (similar to going to a gas station for an ICE car).
