Plug-in Ford Escape plug
Utilities are also testing Ford Escape SUVs which have been converted to be plug-in hybrids. The Escape usually has a 1.5 kilowatt-hour battery but the plug-in has a battery of about 10 kilowatt hours of storage, allowing it to go about 30 miles on batteries under 40 miles per hour, according to utility executives working with the vehicle. The lighted plug isn't just cosmetic--it also helps people find the charger at night.
