Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicles (PHEV) in California


Today around Los Altos I saw a plug-in hybrid Prius parked outside. It had some flyers posted on the windows touting 100 MPG. The owner saw us looking at his car and he desperately wanted to give us a flyer. Maybe he gets a commission.

According to the driver, converting your Prius to PHEV costs approximately $10,000 and it can be done by somebody in San Francisco. He also added that within Toyota recently stated that converting to PHEV does not void your entire warranty. I have not verified the validity of those claims.
