Faster and further on electric
Imagine being able to drive at speeds as high as 135km/h or as far as 50km* without using a drop of fuel. Well, that time is now thanks to the Prius Plug-in Hybrid’s 68kW EV power rating. When your journeys exceed its 50km* EV range the new Prius Plug-in Hybrid is estimated to sip fuel at a mere 1.0l/100km*, which means fewer refuels for you and even fewer emissions from the tailpipe: estimated at an exceptionally low 22g/km*.
A larger capacity lithium-ion battery pack (double the capacity of the first-generation’s battery) offers improved acceleration and extended EV driving times. The benefit? The more you recharge the battery, the more you can drive in full EV mode. The result? Even less time spent in petrol stations!
Featuring a Toyota-first dual motor/generator drive system, the new Prius Plug-in Hybrid offers spirited acceleration and is less dependent on its petrol engine – even when accelerating or using the heater in winter – thanks to the world’s first heat pump air conditioning system with gas injection. As for recharging the battery, in a little over two hours it’ll be fully charged and ready to use its full EV capability.
