Google funds plug-in hybrid vehicles

Its sobering to see that innovative Google is also sponsering the alternative transport sector. In this post from Green Car Congress:

The California Cars Initiative (CalCars) has received a two-year, $200,000 grant from, the philanthropic arm of Google, to support its work in educating the public regarding plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles (PHEVs).

CalCars is a Palo Alto-based nonprofit startup promoting plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs). It characterizes itself as a hybrid, focusing both on public policy and technology development, and harnessing buyer demand to help commercialize PHEVs.

CalCars is also partnering with OEMTek, a provider of components and conversion systems for electric and hybrid vehicles, including plug-in hybrid vehicles.
