EnergyCS of California is deep into testing of a plug-in Toyota Prius, and it's delivered a prototype to California's South Coast Air Quality Management District for evaluation. One of the next generation of hybrid vehicles, the EDrive-equipped Prius barely sips gas while its more powerful plug-in batteries do most of the work, resulting in efficiency that might top 100mpg.
If all goes well with the testing and demonstration of these vehicles and the company's plug-in conversion system, EnergyCS will market the modified Priuses under the EDrive brand. The company says it will be "taking orders soon."
