The Commonwealth will conduct a pilot project to introduce Plug-in Hybrid technology in the state vehicle fleet. Achieving up to 100 miles per gallon, plug-in hybrid cars advance Massachusetts' clean energy goals of saving energy costs, reducing emissions, and decreasing our dependence on foreign oil. The conversion of state-owned hybrids to a battery-plus-gasoline combination will demonstrate the next generation of money-saving, emissions-reducing automobile technology. And the 100 miles per gallon milestone is achievable as a result of an advanced battery technology developed in Massachusetts.
