Toyota's Next Prius May Get 125 MPG

When John and Teresa Kerry were at TownHall a couple of months ago, John said that he had seen a lithium technology battery, which when installed in a regular hybrid, allowed the hybrid to get incredibly good mileage.  A diarist at DailyKos, NMDan, had a post up yesterday that expanded on what Kerry had said.  And, it is apparently happening for the mass market, not just the folks like the Kerrys, who can afford custom installations. 

According to an article on a website called "The Future of Things", the Lithium Technology Corporation has announced that its new lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) technology might be incorporated into hybrid technologies by 2008-2009.

I wonder if anyone has told the folks in Detroit about this?
