PHEVLERs are the Zero CO2 Clean Green Machines of the Future

Green Car Congress

These vehicles are the green machines that will provide a critical part of the renewable and sustainable society that we need for the future. [ On the other hand, drivers of other vehicles waste considerable time making special trips to refuel their internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles at the liquid fuel station or their battery electric vehicle (BEV) at the rapid recharging station. PHEVLERs make our electric grid more efficient. [
