While perusing YouTube the other day, we happened across some re-posted videos from the Hybrid Technologies collection. Nothing out of the ordinary, but then we read a video description that said ,"EV Innovations, formerly Hybrid Technologies, shows off one of thier [sic] electric vehicles." Huh? EV who? We contacted their PR firm who told us, "We will be issuing a press release shortly and will put you on the distribution lists." And then, nothing. Luckily Google didn't similarly let us down and alerted us to the aforementioned press release a day later. So, what's the big news?
Hybrid Technologies, whose considerable range of models doesn't actually include any hybrids, have changed their name to the more apt EV Innovations and their stock symbol to EVII. The reason given for the change is that the company is morphing from "a development stage technology company, to a world class manufacturer of Plug In, Battery powered vehicles." Left out of the understated announcement, but mentioned in a couple of their YouTube pages, was news that they are also planning on bringing some new electric vehicles to the New York Auto Show in April. Perhaps we'll get to see a copy of their 150 mph "Super Car" they sold last year via Sam's Club and we're supposed to bring to the past LA Auto Show. We're also interested to see if the change helps sales any. Brief press brief after the break.

Update: Although EV Innovations didn't say they were bringing it to New York, the company does mention their "Inizio(TM) EVS-7 Super Car" in their press release.
