A recent meeting of the Wisconsin Public Power Inc. included an exhibition of the Columbia ParCar and a Toyota Prius converted to a PHEV. Officials were briefed on the effectiveness of neighborhood electric vehicles (NEV), learning that one municipality uses a NEV to read meters. Many Wisconsin communities have passed measures to allow NEVs on public streets. Officials also got test drives in a NEV and PHEV.
