SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA - September 21, 2009: Jungle Motors, Orange County’s largest electric vehicle conversion facility, is now offering a new Plug-In Hybrid conversion kit for the 2004-2009 Toyota Prius using state of the art Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries and advanced, integrated Battery Management Systems (BMS). Jungle Motors, which converts gasoline powered vehicles into clean, green commuter cars, is now offering drivers yet another way to drive and save green.

“Our new 10KW Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) battery technology and BMS now enable the Prius to travel up to 50 miles at up to 52Mph without turning on the engine,” states Director Brad Sachs. “With our conversion, the driver has 3 (three) options for motive power. Normal Prius Mode, Enhanced Prius Mode and Battery only Mode. In the Normal mode, the vehicle performs like a stock Prius getting over 40 miles per gallon (mpg). In Enhanced mode, the car can deliver over 100 mpg. And in the Battery only mode it becomes an Electric Vehicle (EV) and gets infinite mpg as the gas engine is totally bypassed. All the user has to do is plug in the vehicle at night to recharge the batteries.”

According to statistics, 90% of drivers in the United States drive less than 40 miles on a daily basis. With this new kit installed, drivers can now drive every day around town without ever turning their gas engine on. The company also has plans to offer a similar conversion kit for the Ford Escape, Highlander Hybrid and other hybrid vehicles in the near future.

Price for the new 10KW conversion kit is $10,995.00 and until the end of 2009, installation is included. For further info, call Jungle Motors at (949) 443-0900 or visit
