Authors: Markel, T. Pesaran, A. Kelly, K. Thornton, M. Nortman, P.
 
Abstract: This technical document reports on the exploratory research conducted by NREL on PHEV technology using a Toyota Prius that has been converted to a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle. The data includes both controlled dynamometer and on-road test results, particularly for hilly driving. The results highlight the petroleum savings and benefits of PHEV technology.
