A Troy company that says it can turn your car into a plug-in hybrid for as little as $1,995 will exhibit at the Advanced Automotive Battery Conference in Pasadena, Calif. Jan. 24-28.
Troy-based Enginer Inc. says its products produce 70 mpg cars.
The battery conversion from Enginer comes in two versions — a two-kilowatt-hour version which costs $1,995 and a four-kilowatt-hour version, which sells for $3,495. Enginer said the systems offer payback in two to five years, and there’s a $1,000 discount on the four kwh version for Automation Alley members.
Enginer president Jack Chen says the system can also be used in any hybrid vehicles and the company is seeking to work with the big auto companies to have their technology installed at the factory, instead of as an after-market add-on. Enginer says it is also developing other energy saving technologies and is seeking investors.
In Pasadena, Enginer will exhibit with its lithiuim battery supplier, Real Force Enterprises LLC.

Enginer says it is also looking for auto dealers to serve as retailers, as well as other business partners to help in either product distribution or speeding its overall expansion.
