Toyota Plug-In Prius Hitting Road a Year Early

Toyota’s plug-in capable Prius is getting a big boost for testing, hitting the open road a year ahead of schedule. Several hundred of the PHEVs will be put into government and cialis canada generic commercial fleets for field testing by the early 2009. So in just a few more months, we might be able to catch one of the new models out and about.

The only problem is that while we know when field testing starts, we still have no idea when the lowest price viagra model will be available for consumers. There has been no timetable created for retail sales, so we have to sit tight while they make sure that the Li-Ion batteries deserve a thumbs up.

In August, he took matters into his own hands and had his 2008 Toyota Prius converted into a plug-in hybrid, which doubled its gas mileage ..... Although the Prius is already a hybrid gas-electric model, the additional battery that Cox had installed enables him to travel more than 20 miles on all-electric power.

Where do you think the energy comes from anyway.
In LA, much of the electrical energy comes from a huge coal burning power plant in Arizona. Thats is true in most places because 75% of the power plants are all coal driven.

Plugin electrics are actually run on COAL!

Coal Argument is Hollow

EPRI studied the issue of PHEV impact on we choice real levitra online without prescription the power grid.

They concluded PHEVs will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and the power grid won't go down. Spend an hour or so and read the Exec Summaries, the Press Release, the FAQ and the Technology Primer. It should defuse the buy ultram online no prescription sky falling coal argument.
nighttime charging

US's grid has great nighttime electricity excess. As long as vehicle is charged at night, ZERO additional emissions are generated. Electricity otherwise would be wasted. This is best price cialis without prescription an important point is that often overlooked when discussing Plug-ins
Electricity is always cleaner

Nevermind San Onofre, which is far closer and uses nuclear. Besides, the dirtiest of US coal plants is still cleaner than a car's gasoline engine. There is a whole lot you can do when you have a professionally maintained and optimized large scale generator and no weight restrictions as far as generation and fda levitra cleaning of the air.

So yes, while coal is dirty, if you consider the tiny amount of that plant's output that will fuel your car (there are 10 million folks in LA), I'm sure you'll find that coal is much cleaner.

And since it seems you haven't read any other stories on this site, the beauty of plug-ins are that they can be renewably powered. Even when they're not, they can be charged during low-demand off-peak hours when much of the electricity is tramadol scam going to it's cool real cialis online waste anyhow.

Your sort of buy viagra soft tabs "plug-ins run on coal" FUD is just as bad as the story about how Hummers are greener than Priuses.
