Okay, I hope this is the right forum. The only other closest thing would be "phev modifications" but I'm not sure that is the right place. Does anyone know what Toyota's planned pricing scheme is for the PHEV Prius? I'm seeing lots of people say 12 to 15 miles is the limit. If that is the case, can we discuss the pros/cons of using an aftermarket plug-in kit on a regular prius which would actually get more range than that? Does anyone know the specifications of MG2 in this car? Is it the same or larger than a regular Prius? I don't have a problem with the 12 miles range, as that is actually my daily commute - slightly less than 12 miles. I'm already signed up for a Nissan Leaf, but should that fall through for some reason I'll be looking at a Chevy Volt (which will be nearly impossible to get) or a PHEV prius whether it be factory made or aftermarket. I'm currently driving a 2002 Prius with an Enginer kit, but as many know it has serious limitations, mostly due to the belt-driven air conditioner and the fact that the engine always starts when you turn on the car and won't shut off until it has warmed up.
