Brenda, Plugged-In e-Prius Driver

What are you driving now and what was your previous car?

It's a 2005 white "Mony" Prius with allot of extra batteries somewhere in the trunk, I think. I just drive a bit and plug in, and then drive a bit more. I'll be much happier when I get more batteries and more heat.

How and why did you get interested in this new, clean, efficient Hybrid or Electric technology.

My husband, Erik, sold my dirty old 1994 Honda and gave me his newly modified e-Prius that I have to plug in every night but never stop at a stinky gas station.

How many Hybrid or Electric Km have you driven and what is your average Fuel or Electron efficiency?

Probably only about 1000 km but with a FE of around 1.0 L/100Km or some 300 MPG. I don't really keep track of this sort of hocus-pokus stuff. I just want to drive to see my grand-daughter and get a few groceries on the way home. But, Erik tells me that I typically use less than 40 cents worth of electricity a night and can go some 22 km on that. Of course, he also tells me that I could go further if I lightened up on my accelerator. I just can't quite do that just yet.


Hi, I'm Brenda, and after driving a modified Prius that Erik calls an "e-Prius", I'm now enjoying the silence of an all-electric "Leaf"
