Toyota Prius Plug-in



Introduction

The Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid offers a revolutionary fusion between the benefits of an electric car and the cost efficiency of a hybrid.

With the best of both worlds, and the potential for an OLEV Government Grant, this is an affordable slice of the future.

The new Toyota Prius Plug-in can be discovered at Jardine Motors Group dealerships in Cambridge, Durham, Essex, Suffolk and Sunderland.

Safety

While helping to secure the environment, the Toyota Prius Plug-in does not neglect you or your passengers.

A collection of nine strategically-positioned airbags help to cushion the impact of a crash.

A Tyre-pressure Monitoring System supplements the Traction and Stability Control systems to ensure that the driver remains in control, even in difficult conditions.

Design

Given the range of technology contained within, the exterior of the Prius Plug-in is surprisingly stylish, with slanted headlights and a smooth, aerodynamic curve from front to back.

Within the cabin, carefully shaped seats are designed for comfort and support, and are specially constructed to reduce the risk of whiplash in the event of a collision. There is an abundance of space for all passengers, and a cleverly arranged dashboard provides all necessary information, from how much fuel or electricity remains to how the drivetrain is working, in a concise and easy-to-understand manner.

Technology

The 4.4kWh lithium-ion battery pack enables the car to drive at speeds of up to 62mph for around 15.5 miles using only electric power. Recharging takes around 90 minutes and, should you run out of electricity while driving, the changeover to the 1.8-litre hybrid engine occurs seamlessly.

The Prius Plug-in’s efficiency is reflected in its fuel economy of 134.5mpg as a Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle and 78.5mpg when utilising both petrol and electricity. Carbon dioxide emissions of just 49g/km make this one of the most environmentally friendly and affordable hybrids around.
