Environmental Concerns Grow Hybrid Car Sector - VIDEO FEATURE
MADISON, WI - August 2, 2007:
During the event, General Motors unveiled one of its solutions, a two-mode Chevrolet Hybrid – a vehicle with two electric motors due to be released in late 2007. GM and other car companies also showcased a series of concept vehicles known as plug-in hybrids. By enabling drivers to charge their automobile’s battery at home, plug-in hybrids can run on an electric charge longer and use less gas. While hybrids account for 2 percent of all new cars today, GM officials say this number could quadruple within the next five years.
Hybridfest 2007 expanded its focus to include plug-in hybrids, ethanol, biodiesel, and other current and future transportation solutions. For more information about the event visit http://www.hybridfest.com.
