Green garage caters to hybrid drivers

Tech Industry
[ Music ] ^M00:00:02 >> Good morning, Luscious Garage, this is Michou >> Michou Olivera is one half of the all-female team that owns and operates Luscious Garage. One of the few shops in the country that specializes in hybrid cars. >> And it ended up at his exhaust with hitting the T-shield here. >> We wanted to have a place where people felt comfortable with women, felt comfortable to get service done on their cars, to ask questions, to be educated and to do it in a way that is conscious of the world because this is a very dirty business. >> Besides general maintenance on hybrids, the shop also installs plug-in conversion kits. >> This is a very smart way for you to save money on your gas. >> But the technology is limited. On one eight-hour charge, this particular kid will only let you drive about 15 miles. >> So that basically means 15 miles of no gas for you to have to burn. This is a step in the absolute right direction. >> One, that Bay Area drivers are clamoring to take. >> There's never a dull moment here with lack of customers, lack of interested people. Sounds great, we'll see you then. >> In addition to the mechanic work, Luscious tries to be environmentally conscious in other ways, like relying on solar power. >> We have been I think three weeks off the grid. We are allowed to run our shop and our facility without having to use PG&A >> And all of their oil has been re-refined. >> All of our oil is re-refined and then it might end up back in this car. It might end up in your car, if you bring it here. >> While maintaining a hybrid car can cost less than a regular car, plug-in conversions don't come cheap. Here at Luscious the kit and installation is gonna cost you about $7,000. I'm Kara Tsuboi, CNET.com. ^M00:01:37 [ Music ]
