Toyota’s second-generation Prius Plug-in has debuted at the New York International Auto Show, showcasing all-round improvements to its pioneering original Prius Plug-in in 2012.
If you are looking for a hybrid vehicle with the benefits of extended all-electric EV mode driving, the new Prius Plug-in may be exactly what you have been looking for – and you won’t have long to wait, with this new flagship for Toyota advanced technology arriving in showrooms from the end of 2016.
Driving range, power and maximum speed have improved, so owners can enjoy going further with an all-electric driving range of more than 30 miles – which is almost double that of the Prius predecessor – and excel with impressive acceleration, with the new Prius Plug-in able to go faster and be driven at speeds of up to 84mph in EV mode.
Benefit from class-leading credentials from the Prius Plug-in’s 1.8-litre VVT-i engine, boasting an estimated average fuel consumption of 202mpg and CO2 emissions of 32g/km – the best plug-in hybrid fuel efficiency currently on the market. Better yet, benefit from a more engaging driving position thanks to the use of the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture), which also provides more precise and responsive handling.
The new Prius was launched earlier this year, and the Prius Plug-in is equally as impressive, if not more so, building on the conventionally-powered version’s strengths. The plug-in model variant, for example, features the world’s first solar roof charging and gas injection heat pump air conditioning for use with EV mode, aiding in the vehicle’s improvements in efficiency.
