The Milwaukee Hybrid Group ( MiHG )
Welcome to the Milwaukee Hybrid Group homepage! 

Thanks for your interest in hybrid technology.  We hope to answer the questions and concerns of current and future hybrid owners regarding hybrid vehicles.  Our organization is committed to the promotion of hybrid vehicles and informing the public about their many benefits.  We look forward to being an active part of the Metro-Milwaukee community with gatherings for future and current hybrid owners to exchange tips and experiences.
The MiHG is the home of:

-The STEP Program;
    S - to support new hybrid owners with driver training
    T - to teach new hybrid owners about their vehicles
    E - to educate the public about EcoDriving, oil dependency, global warming and energy efficiency.
    P - to promote hybrid technology and other forms of sustainable transportation options.

-The VTP Program;
    MiHG members perform Vehicle Tire Pressure checks to promote the fuel efficient use of any vehicle.

-And EcoDriving;
    The education of all vehicle owners on fuel efficient driving, to increase fuel economy and lower tailpipe emissions.




The Milwaukee Hybrid group will meet informally around the Metro-Milwaukee area periodically.  These meetings are a good opportunity to meet fellow hybrid owners and those interested in hybrid technology.  You do not need to own a hybrid to attend.  Prospective buyers are encouraged to come and talk to real hybrid owners.

Email us at and we will keep you up to date as events are planned.  If you own a hybrid, please include the year and model.
Next Meet: 12-15,  Oak Creek
