An Even Better Prius?
The California Cars Initiative (CalCars), a nonprofit group of environmentalists, engineers and other volunteers, is actively recruiting Prius owners and their cars, and other supporters, to create PRIUS+.
If you own an '04-'05 Prius, you know how great your car is. We hope you'll consider joining a unique effort to "soup it up" -- and then encourage Toyota to come along for the ride.
Together, we can help bring to market an even more efficient car -- the first example of the transitional vehicle for the next decade or more. Here's what PRIUS+ does:
The result? Daily trips at local-street speed in "stealth" (all-electric) mode, plus double the mileage of your 40-50 MPG stock Prius. You'll live a greener life, gas up less often and help the auto industry reduce oil imports and stem climate change.
Join a select network of affluent early adopters. Be the "first on your block" to own a next-generation car that relies entirely on existing, proven technology. We've built an early prototype, with more on the way.
Maybe you can't afford a high-cost (five figures) early version from us, would rather wait.
But if you want to help make sure auto makers bring to market a clean, cool car, please help connect us with:
