About Toyota Prius

The basic concept that’s propelled the Prius to hybrid leadership for two decades worldwide (16 years in the U.S.) is unchanged: an internal-combustion engine augmented on demand by an electric motor, sending power to the front wheels. But as the 4th-generation Prius rolls into showrooms, Toyota’s pioneering Hybrid Synergy Drive is more efficient, fuel-economy ratings are highest of “any vehicle without a plug,” according to Toyota USA boss Bill Fay, and a plug-in version is on its way. However, there’s a lot more to the new Prius than chart-topping fuel economy. Edgy styling. Robust chassis rigidity. Upgraded interior design and furnishings. Improved road manners. Quiet operation. It will be surprising if the Prius doesn’t sustain its hybrid-sales leadership.

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.
