Video Transcript

What we're doing there is designing and constructing plug-in hybrid cars. The plug-in hybrid car is a concept that is like a regular hybrid car, excepting we have much more batteries, we have a much bigger electric motor, and much smaller gasoline engine. And the result is we get better fuel economy, we get the ability to drive all-electrically and the cars that we build will go up to 60 miles all-electrically.
