The Cars that Will Recharge America
A politically polarized America is coming together over a new kind of car--the plug-in hybrid that
will save drivers money, reduce pollution, and increase US security by reducing dependence on
"Plug-in Hybrids" points out that, where hydrogen fuel-cell cars won't be ready for decades,
the technology for plug-in hybrids exists today. Unlike conventional hybrid cars that can't run
without gasoline, plug-in hybrids use gasoline or cheaper, cleaner, domestic electricity--or both.
Although plug-in hybrids are not yet for sale, demand for them is widespread, coming from
characters across the political spectrum.
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 market--and stay here.
