The California Cars Initiative (calcars.org) is a nonprofit startup of entrepreneurs, engineers, environmentalists and consumers promoting high-efficiency low-emission plug-in hybrid cars and harnessing buyer demand to help commercialize them.

We're demonstrating the immediate opportunity and benefits of "plug-in hybrids" (PHEVs). Based entirely on existing components, they're like current hybrids but with larger batteries and the ability to re-charge conveniently. So local travel is electric, yet the vehicle has unlimited range. They are the pathway to future zero-emission multi-fuel and bio-fuel PHEVs.

Our "PRIUS+" prototypes prove we can have "100+MPG (of gasoline) hybrids." We're working with others to develop fleet orders from utilities, government private companies and early adopters.

We're also involved in advocacy and public policy, educating the large market of buyers who will pay extra for green cars. We're presenting the benefits of PHEVs, along with wind and solar power, as a coordinated response to two of our greatest challenges: global warming and energy security. We're exploring with public officials ways to provide incentives to auto makers to build PHEVs.
