Plug-in HybridPlug-In Hybrid Electric vehicles represent one of the most immediate, dramatic, and affordable solutions for reducing petroleum use and global warming pollution from vehicles. 

Plug-ins are capable of achieving more than 100 miles per gallon gasoline equivalent and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by nearly 60 percent in California. Even greater reductions are possible as we add more renewable power sources, such as solar and wind, to our electric grid.

Importantly, no new fueling, production, or transportation infrastructure is required to achieve these profound greenhouse gas reductions; an extension cord and a standard outlet is all that is necessary to refuel the car’s electric battery.
