A working 80MPG custom Prius Hybrid

It looks like someone has beat the car manufacturers in creating a near 100mpg hybrid. It is interesting that someone with $3,000 and some spare time can do what car manufacturers have said they are "trying" to do. The drawback to this car is that you have to plug it in.

Why don't they make solar panel that goes on the top of the car? During summer I am sure it would provide plenty of electricity to recharge the initial batteries. I am sure there is enough technology out there to make it easy to own and use one of these cars even if it has to be plugged in. Car manu's aren't going to let that happen until we run out of the Earth's oil reserves.

  • Although I agree that U.S. automakers will NOT produce 100mpg or better vehicles until mainstream America stops purchasing gas guzzling SUVs, Full-size trucks and high-performance cars such as the Chevy Camaro out soon, the Mustang and the Dodge Challenger. The market will force the issue when gas goes over four dollars per gallon(which will be soon!)Current C.A.F.E. rules are a joke and allow automakers an excuse to keep making cars that are "FLEXfuel"-meaning they can run on ethanol not available to 99%of the population.

    To address your comments re:the $3000 Prius upgrade-that dollar amount is just for LABOR, not parts. The complete lithium battery packs sold by Hymotion of Canada or CalCars in the U.S., are running around $9000 uninstalled.Your total investment if you are not an engineer will be more like $12-13,000.

    So 100mpg plug-in hybrids are still a few years away and American car companies still show us conceptual cars they may never make and feed us mushroom food. Why? Because the industry that "fuels" replacement parts for internal combustion vehicles is a mega-billion dollar industry. Thousands of jobs hang in the balance of us using last century technology to get the groceries. Problem is, will we survive the next oil crisis? Wise men say that organisms that have survived on planet Earth for eons have had to adapt. Those who do not, go extinct.
    The question is-are we all willing to change the way we light our homes and power our cars?

    Time is running out, oil reserves are running out. How long will we continue to buy our oil from countries like Venezuela and Saudi Arabia who hate us and would rather us die than prosper?

  • Hi there!
    I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

    For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
    I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
    Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
