It was bound to happen. Someone out there couldn't deal with the Prius' outstanding 50 MPG and just had to take it to the next level.

The Lithium Technology Corporation has unveiled their version of the Prius hybrid and it's a "plug-in." The new model uses an advanced lithium iron phosphate battery that allows the hybrid car to travel up to a distance of 125 miles per gallon of fuel. If Toyota were to adopt the new battery system, it could lead to the most efficient mass-produced car in the world.

With the cost of gasoline reaching a premium here in the good ol' US of A, the Toyota Prius demonstrated by LTC would cost you almost nothing to fill up. The car charges up by plugging into a power outlet in the owner's garage.

Next up....Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor!!!
