California Revs Up Plug-In Hybrid Trial Project

January 29, 2010 /EIN PRESSWIRE/ In an effort to study plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) performance, the California Department of General Services will take part in a two-year experiment to determine the benefits of driving PHEVs.

Funded by the California Energy Commission, the study will involve 50 converted Toyota Prius vehicles and will examine data related to automobile performance, what efficiencies are gained and how much greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced.

The state’s motor fleet includes more than 50,000 vehicles, and the study will help determine if the state can or should make the move from gas to hybrid-electric vehicles.
