Toyota has manufactured four new electric powered shuttle cars. They are
going to be used as public transport in the Portland area after the new
implantation of electric car recharging and hybrid filling stations in the
area. These public transport electric vehicles are going to be the first in
a line of green transportation systems that are going to be available for
public use.

The cars are based around the already available RAV4 model, which is a
hybrid. The Portland state University is planning a travel scheme, using
these shuttle cars to transport students and/or staff through downtown and
suburban areas.

Toyota has also revealed plans to showcase new hybrids that run on
compressed natural gas and electricity, instead of standard unleaded gas and
electric. The cars will be shown off at the Los Angeles Auto Show in front
of thousands of potential buyers.
