The Mayor of Minneapolis, Minnesota, R.T. Rybak, is currently on his third hybrid vehicle after having previously driven a standard Toyota Prius and a Ford Escape Hybrid. He's now back in a Prius, but this time it's a plug-in version. The plug-in Prius is a conversion done by A123 subsidiary HyMotion. It's claimed that they get up to 70 mpg compared to the old Crown Victoria that used to shuttle the mayor which got 10 mpg. Check out the video of the mayor with his car after the jump.
