Maui Test Prius to be Unveiled

Saturday, April 4th, 2009

Looking for something to do Monday afternoon?  How about checking out the new hybrid Prius that Maui county is going to put on the road for testing.

The Prius is a rechargeable Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) converted from a standard Toyota Prius that is owned by the county.

From the county Press Release:

"The PHEV is a test car that will wirelessly transmit data as part of a national advanced technology vehicle study being conducted in cooperation with the Idaho National Laboratory/U.S. Department of Energy. The project presents a unique opportunity for Maui to learn more about the latest advances in automotive technology and data automation."

The car will be unveiled on Monday, April 6th, at 2:30pm on the front lawn of the County Building in Wailuku. The county is encouraging the public to attend, so give it a shot!
