Re: [EVDL] Hybrid Technologies PT Cruiser Taxis (was: Walmart (Sam's Club) to be sell

Hello All,

There was an article not too long ago where a bunch of PT Cruiser Taxis
were returned to Hybrid Technologies because they did not perform as
advertised. Here's a link to the article:

http://www.autobloggreen.com/2007/07/16/electric-pt-cruiser-couldnt-cut-it-as-ny-taxi/

The central theme of the article was that NYC was expecting 100 miles
per charge on 10 hour service each day under taxi cab driving conditions
and the usual range was 40 miles with a lot a time on car transports.
This Sam's offering could end up being another black eye for EVs.

Caveat Emptor.

I wonder what Hybrid Technologies did with the PT Cruisers? A 40 to 100
mile range would suit me even if I had to redo the engineering.

Peter
