Hybrid car

DLA, Inc. bought a new company car, the Lexus RX 400h (h standing for hybrid). For around-town driving, of which we do a lot of, the car uses hardly any gasoline, relying instead on battery power. The battery is charged by movement of the car, or by the gasoline motor, which kicks in when accelerating. Haven't put much driving into it yet, but the thing is so incredibly quiet at stoplights, in heavy traffic, even on the highway if you coast, that you can't tell it is really on.


Photos later, and whatever other observations worth remembering.
