Enterprise, Toyota and Yahoo! adding Prius plug-in hybrid demo unit to WeCar program

Enterprise Rent-A-Car, through a partnership with Toyota and Yahoo!, is adding a Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid demonstration vehicle (PHV) to the WeCar program for Yahoo! employees at the company’s Sunnyvale campus.

WeCar car sharing complements Yahoo!’s Enterprise Rideshare program—a vanpool service for commuters—to provide a transportation alternative for Yahoo! employees. WeCar provides vehicles for personal use during the work day to more than 50 Enterprise Rideshare participants on Yahoo!’s Sunnyvale and Santa Clara campuses.

Toyota is delivering more than 160 Prius PHV vehicles across the United States as part of a demonstration program. The purpose of the program is to educate and inform the public about plug-in hybrid technology and gather real-world driving data. A fully charged Toyota Prius Plug-In Hybrid vehicle is capable of running on electricity for approximately 13 miles (21 km) at speeds of up to 62 mph (100 km/h).

For longer distances, the Plug-In Hybrid vehicle reverts to conventional hybrid mode, operating as a regular Prius. The Prius PHV can be fully charged in approximately three hours from a standard 110-volt electrical outlet, or in 90 minutes with a 220-volt connection.

Enterprise will continue to work with Toyota to test the PHV in other WeCar programs that will be implemented in the coming weeks.



Good idea.

I wish our local City Car Sharing (1,100 small cars of which 50 are Leafs) would add (50+) Prius PHEVs to their fleet. Doubling the 125 new charge points should not be a problem.
