This article reports on the support of EDF Energy on a trial of a new Toyota petrol/electric plug-in hybrid vehicle (PHV). EDF Energy staff will be using the first PHV to hit streets in Great Britain and the energy company has already helped install 40 public charging posts in and around London, England with more to come. The PHV batteries can be charged directly from the mains, enabling it to operate on electric power alone for short distances.
