Happy New Year EVeryone!

Consumers Union had a Prius converted and covered it in February 2009
issue (sorry, the scanned image of the article is too big to attach).
They also wrote about it on their blog:

ageIndex=1&resultIndex=1&searchTerm=prius%20hybrid

I found it interesting the conversion was done at a Toyota dealership.

I think they could have painted a prettier picture of EVs while still
maintaining their objectivity.  They didn't mention charging stations or
the fact that any old outlet will do.  They neglected to mention wind
and solar electricity production.  And they gave no references for
readers who may want to move forward despite the drawbacks.
