Attendees will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with exhibiting companies showcasing their newest and soon-to-be released products in Mobility Garage.

To show that a Toyota Prius can run as a propane-electric hybrid, the National Alternative Fuels Training Consortium (NAFTC) and ICOM North America adapted a vehicle to run in this manner. In this photo, NAFTC’s Mark Kemp shows the propane fuel rail on the modified Prius to attendees of last year’s Mobility Garage.
