Massachusetts to Convert 10 Priuses to Plug-Ins
Massachusetts officials are planning a pilot project to introduce plug-in hybrid technology to the state vehicle fleet.
The test program will aim at retrofitting 10 state hybrids -- from SUVs to passenger vehicles -- with plug-in power, enabling the vehicles to run partially on electricity, and gaining a fivefold increase in efficiency, Massachusetts Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Ian Bowles announced at a press conference Friday afternoon.
The conversions are expected to cost $8,000 to $10,000 per vehicle, Bowles said.
