Welcome To Plug-In 2008


P1000113-filtered I attended the Welcome Reception for Plug-In 2008 last night and got my first look at the Exhibition Hall.  Here’s some of what I saw:


That’s the Plug-In Hybrid from the Sacramento Muni Utility District…



AC Propulsion’s Ebox all electric car…
























Consider this my visual sneak preview.  Tonight I’ll be blogging about who is here and what they’re showing.


In the meantime, let me leave you with two important items.  This from Plug-In America co-founder, Paul Scott, who reports that Japanese plug-in car makers have reached an important agreement to standardize batteries:

Toyota Motor Corp, Nissan Motor Co, Matsushita Electric Industrial Co and other Japanese companies will work together to set up common standards for lithium-ion batteries being developed to power next-generation cars, the Nikkei business daily said on Saturday.


And this great article from Stefano Paris on his UC Davis professor, and the man I consider the Godfather of Plug-In Hybrids, Professor Andrew Frank.
