How did you become involved in the team? When gasoline price went up to $5 per gallon two years ago, Jack, a long time automotive engineer, thought there must be a better and easier way. He started working on plug-in hybrid conversion kit for hybrid vehicles. Other fuel efficiency improvement ideas and solutions are coming along the way. We are focusing on after market solutions that provide most cost effective way to make an impact quickly.
2012 Toyota Prius PHEV-11 – $32,000 to start, 11-miles all-electric range on the plug and a 50- mpgUS combined figure on gasoline. A limited $2,500 tax credit is available because the pack is too small?
We believe a new EV/Plug-in vehicle sales is big step forward to resolve national security and global warming issues. However, we still have 99.96% vehicles continue to run on fossil fuel. To replacing those vehicles with new ones may take two decades even we are selling 100% EV/Plug-in vehicles every day and time is not on ... more »
The Latest PHEV Technology

With use of electricity to run PHEVs f... more »
Troy, MI – While the big auto companies were still trying to bring to market the high fuel efficient vehicles that the public is clamoring for, a small Troy company, have already achieved 70 mpg in 2009 and have 500 units on the road in early 2011. The highly touted GM Volt, which costs over $40,000 and reportedly goes 40 miles before needing to have its batteries recharged and achieves only 35 mpg on highway. Enginer has created the best of both worlds by using a hybrid, such as Toyota Prius, with fuel economy of 50 mpg on highway and... more »

We have seen a lot of great designs from other teams. They may lead us well into the future. Congratulations to their great work and acomplishment. But you may not see those on the road for years to come or never. One of the criteria for the competition is 10,000 unit annual mass production ready. Would that be realized?
Although we don't have the highest MPGe vehicle and didn't get the most practical votes, but it is real and there are over 300 vehicles with our plugin conversion kit on the road.
You don't need to wait until 2012 for Toyo... more »
Sunday will be our last day at MIS. We got an official result. Our vehicle didn't achieve minimum fuel economy to continue in the competition. The very rigorous drive cycles (6 stops, 0 to 50 MPH every 2 miles) took us by surprise. It is quite different from the EPA UDDC cycle with which we have tested and got great result. Our vehicle has not been tuned to such aggressive drive cycle. We wish we could have chance to practice ahead of time.
Nevertherless, it has been a great adventure for all of us. We met a lot of talented people from othe... more »
