New Electric Hybrid to Visit the Brainerd Home Show

Visitors to the Home Show at the Brainerd Civic Center this weekend will have a new kind of car hybrid to view. It is a ford escape, according to Chad Rensler of Basin Electric of North Dakota. He says the only difference between this small SUV and a standard Escape is a battery pack under the seat.
Rensler tells KLKS News, the big difference the ability to drive it with out gasoline. He says by charging over-night from a house hold electricity, motorists could travel 30 miles for about a nickel.
The vehicle is sponsored in part by Crow Wing Power.
