Six U.S. dealers have been selected to offer their customers exclusive Hymotion L5 Plug-In Prius Conversion Modules from A123Systems.
These modules allow the dealership to convert Prius hybrid vehicles into plug-in hybrids capable of reported fuel economy that can surpass 150 mpg.
“We are excited to offer our customers more options to help moderate the effects of high fuel costs,” says Jack Fitzgerald, founder and chairman of the Washington D.C.-based Fitzgerald Auto Malls, one of the selected dealership groups.
“The Hymotion Plug-in conversion option is one of the latest and best options I've seen come along,” he says. “Alternative-fuel vehicles and increasing the fuel efficiency of automobiles are the future of the industry.”
Fitzgerald's Lakeforest Toyota store was chosen as one of A123Systems' Green CHIP dealerships based on the owner's support of environmental initiatives, strong customer service and commitment to introducing advanced vehicle technologies.
The other Green CHIP dealers are: Westboro Toyota in Boston, Denny Hecker Automotive Group in Minneapolis, Burt's Hybrid Conversion in Denver, Green Gears/Pat's Garage in San Francisco and Green Car Co. in Seattle. n
