Hello everyone! I've been a fan of clean transportation for some time now. I've built my own electric motorcycle and electric car, but until now I've probably clocked less than ten minutes total in a Prius. My wife's old Pontiac Sunfire is is really getting up in age and miles, and we decided it was time for a new car. I really wanted something with good fuel-economy, and ideally could run on alternative fuels (including electricity.) All she really wanted was something reliable with good heat (we are in Wisconsin) and air-conditioning. I started looking around and asking everyone I knew for good leads. Eventually I found a 2004 Prius for sale that already had a Hymotion L5 kit in it. The interior and exterior were in great condition, and it was low miles. So, the new family car is a red Prius with a plug! I am already on a renewable energy program at my house, and hope to get more solar panels in the future as well. I'm sure I'll have plenty of questions for other folks who have experience with the Hymotion setup, but for now, I'll just have to poke through all the general Prius newbie information and then jump into the advanced stuff. Everyone said this is THE place to be to talk about Priusus, er Pri?, Prii? Um Toyota hybrids.
