Google and Prius Team Up June 20, 2007 10:09 AM
Many corporations talk the talk on the environment, now Google is walking the walk, with a modified Prius.
Google is backing a fuel efficient fleet of plug in Prius hybrid cars. These cars can travel further than the average American commutes on a single charge. After that distance it switches to traditional gas/electric hybrid technology. Google states these cars produce up to 65% less CO2. On top of this they say these cars get an extra 30mpg better mileage than the traditional hybrid car (that's hybrid car, not gas pwered) !
With Google's support and a 10 milion dollar funding program towards plug in car developent expect to see more extension cords connecting to a Prius soon.
It's great to see corporate leadership, rather than forcing companies kicking and screaming.
