Plug-In your Prius

California Cars Initiative for Plug-In Hybrid Vehicles is getting set to bring to market 100 MPG Plug-In Hybrids. They say these are "The Cars We Can Have Now and for the Next Ten Years"

The century-old gasoline-powered engine is on its way out. Auto makers and the Bushenegger guvmint say the answer will someday be fuel cell cars (Google the Hydrogen economy and learn what a fallacy that idea is!) Maybe, but we need to get affordable cars now that use far less gas with lower greenhouse gas emissions. A first step is already on our roads. Hybrid cars add an electric motor to a gas-powered engine to improve efficiency at slow speeds and rev up when needed. The popularity of the first hybrids caught auto makers by surprise. Yet as they scramble to catch up, they're missing the big opportunity to leapfrog to next-generation hybrids.

So CalCars is getting ready to set up the after-market mods so we can have these cars now! I encourage you to be a Charter Sponsor and help save the world.
