plug-in electric vehicle (PHEV) symposium

San Jose, CA – We are a Plug-in hybrid electric vehicle symposium in San Jose, CA. Tom Gage, AC Propulsion, gives a comparison of the PHEV to some other popular alternative energy cars.

Gage compares the Jetta hybrid to the Jetta internal combustion engine car.

The PHEV was put on to show the difference PHEV alternative engine will make in our gasoline consumption and the environment. California has a Zero Emissions Vehicle (ZEV) mandate on the books, so it is important to understand this future technology.
