Toyota is donating 10 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to a research project aimed at monitoring how plug-ins interact with Xcel Energy’s SmartGridCity project in Boulder.

The 10 cars — part of a 150-car plug-in demonstration fleet that Toyota plans to release in the United States early next year — will be studied by the Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute, a joint institute of the University of Colorado and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in Golden.
