Electric Cars Winning Over the White House

Abstract:
A U.S. president inspecting a Prius converted to a plug-in hybrid and an all-electric sport utility truck, both vehicles powered by advanced, nanotechnology-based lithium ion batteries. The Prius utilizes A123 batteries, while the SUT makes use of Altairnano batteries.

EV World has been covering the development of not only these remarkable batteries [see: A123 Delivers on Nanotechnology Promise and Breakthrough 2007 ] but also electric plug-in hybrids and Phoenix Motorcars, so you can imagine our excitment when we learned of the demonstration on the South Lawn of the White House yesterday.
