Wow! We have the car! It is amazing! Steve Woodruff took us in a test drive and showed us all the features. It was a lot of information to take in. Going home I couldn't figure out how to turn off the navigation switch till about half way home. Duh! All I had to do was hit the info button on the column! Oh well!
It has a voice activated control. Very neat. The only disappointment was that I asked for a cup of coffee and ...it didn't make it for me! Bummer! Other than it changed, radio, maps, climate, etc.
Here are photos of the dash, the PHEV button, and the stealth (ultra cool EV only) mode! The extra photo is of Steve's Lithium battery pack in Jenny's Prius.
I'll update more later as we get use to all the features.

Here is the long awaited Hiero PHEV. Isn't it a beauty? The first picture is of the spring assembly, then the battery pack in the trunk, and then the final rear shot with the 100 mpg bumper sticker! What an amazing journey! More to follow soon!

Wow! What a great job on the Prius! Look at the left side that was wrecked! Looks great. Steve is just getting ready to install the PHEV this week and test drive. We should be getting it soon. Very cool indeed!

We are having a new PHEV Prius built by www.autobeyours.com in Indiana. On this site we will post pictures of our PHEV being built and the final project of course. What is a PHEV? It is a Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicle. There are only about 160 of them in the entire USA! When finished it will get about 10-15 miles on each electric charge going 52 m.p.h. or less or it will average over 100 mpg on assist to the regular hybrid set up.
The picture posted is of the car in its condition now! Wow! Steve is a genius! The battery pack is produced by Plug in Prius.
