Earlier this week, the Silicon Valley Leadership Group was officially handed keys to its first three Prius Plug-in hybrids (PHEVS). Later this summer, an additional 30 plug-in Priuses will be handed over to various Silicon Valley groups and companies. With plug-in Priuses taking to the roads in the Silicon Valley area, chargers aren't far behind.
Coulomb Technologies will send over its ChargePoint Networked Charging Stations to support Toyota's plug-in Prius program. Coulomb will provide the Silicon Valley Leadership Group with the first charging station, but additional chargers will follow soon. Toyota's rollout of the PHEV Prius demonstrators will eventually include 600 total vehicles, with 150 slated for use in the U.S. Testing of the Prius will help Toyota fine tune it's plug-in technology before releasing a next-gen plug-in Prius to the public in 2012.
