A Department of Transportation study shows that most
cars drive less than 50 miles a day on average.* A
dual-mode hybrid car operating in
all-electric mode for the first 25-50 miles can
dramatically reduce our growing dependency on foreign
oil and reduce harmful emissions.
The Plug-In Hybrid Development Consortium is made up of component suppliers working together to accelerate the commercial production of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). Consortium members cooperate to deliver innovative new solutions that make affordable plug-in hybrids possible.
The Consortiumís cooperative efforts help automakers
short-cut years of research and development. The Consortium
also works to build political support and secure new
funding for PHEV development.
