I-GO held a press conference with Illinois Governor Pat Quinn and ComEd on April 21 at the James R. Thompson Center to announce I-GO’s new plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. ComEd funded the plug-in conversions for the two cars. Representatives of the Center for Neighborhood Technology — which launched I-GO in 2002 — were on hand as well.

Gov. Quinn referred to car sharing as a significant movement in the state’s emerging green infrastructure, and said he supports the proliferation of plug-ins across Chicago and the state. I-GO hopes to expand its plug-in program in Chicago and beyond as that green industry expands in the years to come.
