RechargeIT.org Aims to Cut CO2 Emissions

"RechargeIT is an effort within Google.org ... to reduce CO2 emissions, cut oil use, and stabilize the electrical grid by accelerating the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles ... a demonstration fleet of plug-ins at our headquarters in Mountain View and make publicly available the statistics on the performance of those cars ... Google plug-ins achieved 93+ MPG... most every large automaker is putting out a plug-in in the next 2 - 4 years ..."

"We've had our RechargeIT plug-ins on the road for over two years, collecting data when driven by Google employees in our free car-share program ... wanted to see how they would perform in a controlled test ... the plug-ins did great, getting as much as 93 MPG average across all trips, and 115 MPG for city trips!... "
