It was very interesting but I think I'll wait for the conversion from toyota in a few years.
$9k???!!!

Then you have to pay for electricity and replace batteries?

No, I think he said it was an add-on battery to the existing oem battery. I did some research on the kit and depending on what you pay for electricity it would cost 75 cents for a full charge, which usually takes 4 hours. Still 9K is ridiculous for just a battery and software. I assume it will get cheaper in a few years but by that time the plug in prius should hit the usa I hope.
