Luscious Garage is proud to offer a new conversion kit from Plug-In Conversions starting May 2009. Having assisted Kim with the development of this kit for over a year now, I was understandably thrilled to participate in the first install earlier this week in Omaha, NE. Performed for Omaha Public Power District (pic of Carolyn with OPPD techs Brandon and Dan), the kit will provide 25 miles “electric first” range with OE system architecture (expanding the original battery capacity, rather than “piggy-backing” on top). The system installs for $12,500 and is expected for CARB certification with a 10 year warranty. The PIC system will vastly outperform others currently available.

More information on specs is definitely forthcoming, along with pictures and data once the shop Prius is converted (mid-April).
