Retro Fit Plug-in Hybrid Kit

Hey everyone....check this out. It's a Retro fit plug-in hybrid kit, that attaches to the backing plates of the rear brakes, designed to fit most car. I'd initially found it on, "This Could Be Big" with ABC News Bill Weir.

Cost will be about $3,000.00.

What is the payback for your particular car when gas is $4.00 / gallon and you get an additional 50% efficiency?

Re: Retro Fit Plug-in Hybrid Kit

Just like any piece of first generation technology, it's always expensive when it first hits the market. I'm counting on the fact that once this technology matures, it will not only get better but cheaper too. When it does, that will be the time to buy.
