Plug-in Hybrids: The Cars that will Recharge America
A politically polarized America is coming together over a new kind of carthe plug-in hybrid that will save drivers money, reduce pollution, and increase US security by reducing dependence on imported oil.
Plug-in Hybrids points out that, where hydrogen fuel-cell cars wont be ready for decades, the technology for plug-in hybrids exists today. Unlike conventional hybrid cars that cant run without gasoline, plug-in hybrids use gasoline or cheaper, cleaner, domestic electricityor both. Although plug-in hybrids are not yet for sale, demand for them is widespread, coming from characters across the political spectrum, such as:
Chelsea Sexton, the automotive insider: working for General Motors, Sexton fought attempts to destroy the all-electric EV1 car and describes how car companies are resisting plug-in hybridsand why theyll make them -anyway.
Felix Kramer and the tech squad: Kramer started a nonprofit organization using the Internet to tap into a small army of engineers who built the first plug-in Prius hybrids.
R. James Woolsey, former CIA director and national security hawk: seeing the end of oil supplies looming, Woolsey is demanding plug-in hybrids to wean us from petroleum.
Cautioning that the oil and auto companies know how to undermine the success of plug-in car programs to protect their interests, the book gives readers tools to ensure that plug-in hybrids get to marketand stay here.
