Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid

Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid

About Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid

Available in 15 states, the 2015 Prius Plug-in is the most efficient vehicle in Toyota's lineup of hybrid cars. Though it looks, drives and behaves much like the standard Prius, the Plug-in has a lithium-ion battery that grants up to 11 miles of electric-only driving. As its name suggests, this hatchback is recharged by plugging into an electrical outlet. The upside of the Prius Plug-in is that unlike a pure electric vehicle, it has a gasoline engine just like the standard Prius that gives it a range of over 500 miles. While its electric-only range is far shorter than that of the Chevrolet Volt, the Prius Plug-in still qualifies for carpool stickers. For traffic-weary commuters, that incentive alone makes the Plug-in the most desirable Prius.

2012 Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid

The 2012 Toyota Prius hybrid gains some new styling, with a revised front end, new headlight and taillight designs and new 15-inch wheel covers on the Prius 2. A host of new audio systems is added, including Toyota's Entune. Entune is a subscription infotainment service similar to Ford's SYNC that uses voice-recognition software for many of its functions, and includes apps for Bing, Pandora and Movietickets.com.

The new Prius Plug-in Hybrid uses a lithium-ion battery that can be recharged in 3 hours via a standard power outlet or half that time on a 240-volt line. The car can travel in electric-only mode for 11 miles and at speeds up to 62 mph, then works as a regular Prius hybrid after the battery discharges.

"This is the perfect car for me right now. I can take advantage of all electric driving for short trips around town but yet get to enjoy the great Prius gas mileage for longer trips or even road trips across the country. The hatchback is very versatile and can surprisingly hold a ton of stuff and seat 4 or 5 passengers comfortably. There is a lot of great tech in this car. By far the best vehicle I've ever owned."

Pros: "Good all around car"

Cons: "Not enough EV mileage. Should be over 20 miles"

"Loved the 2008 but had almost 100,000 miles on it was worried about battery replacement cost. Read about the plug-in coming out. So ordered a 2012. Love it. Was my primary car running around locally, got 70-85 mpg. On trips get 52-55 mpg without plugging up. Recently bought a used Ev to keep the mileage down on it. Was going to hit the 100,000 long before the 10 yrs. Only thing bad is the Prius EV mileage is not enough. Should be 20- 25. Also in winter u need the engine to run to get heat. If u mash too hard on gas or turn heater on Engine goes in warm-up. You learn to save the EV when the engine starts. Save it for slow town driving. Should not have a pure EV for primary car, but makes a good second car. But a Hybrid plug-in is great for trips & all around driving."

"Since we bought this car we have averaged about 85mpg. It is a very reliable car and perfect for the crazy soccer mom driving that we seem to do every day. Also took it out through the Sierra Nevada National Parks and it did great there too. It is a regular Prius with a little bit extra. We have solar panels so it made sense to get the plug in otherwise a regular Prius would be just fine (and for less)."
