How and why did you get interested in this new, clean, efficient Hybrid or Electric technology.
When I was 18, I designed an electric car with my engineer-Dad. Of course, we didn't have Li Batteries then. However, this Hybrid technology is the best of both worlds and makes a "no-compromise" car. And upgrading it to a Plug-In puts it over the top -- Utopia!
After driving mostly on Electric for the past two years, I am totally spoiled with the luxury of driving electrically. I don't miss standing out in the cold and rain at a smelly gas station, pumping gas every week and having to pay almost a hundred dollars every time. Now, all that I have to do is take 11 seconds to plug in my car every night in the privacy of my own garage. And every single morning, I am rewarded with a Full Tank of Electrons ... for less than 50 cents a night!! I think that driving a "recycled" Prius is the epitome of environmental awareness.
