Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid Overview at FARMER & CARLISLE IN LEICESTER & LOUGHBOROUGH, LEICESTERSHIRE
With the ability to drive up to 39-miles in electric mode alone, the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid delivers an electric drive without the range anxiety. The 1.8 petrol-hybrid engine will return up to 235.4mpg combined and when you do call on the petrol engine a smooth automatic transmission takes care of everything. You won’t use a drop of petrol pootling about and with a range of class-leading technologies and safety kit, living with the Prius is a pleasure. It comes as standard with Smart Entry and Push-button Start and Toyota Safety Sense, while Excel models add Intelligent Park Assist and leather upholstery.
Prius Plug-in Hybrid Features
Distinctive styling and a premium cabin make the Prius alluring inside and out. LED headlights come as standard and for the first time the Plug-in Hybrid has a solar panel roof which boosts electric range by 3-miles. Now that’s clever.
Everything is seamless. With 100% charge the battery pack lets you drive in fully electric mode for up to 39-miles. A 122bhp 1.8 petrol engine backs it up, coming on song when you want maximum performance or a range boost.
While less practical than the hybrid (due to the extra space the bigger battery pack takes up) the Prius Plug-in still has space for four passengers and a 360-litre boot. The boot also has a dedicated space for stowing away the charging cable.
Living With It
With Smart Entry and Push-button Start, Toyota Safety Sense with Adaptive Cruise Control and Auto High Beam, a reversing camera and Intelligent Park Assist, the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid is all about making life easier. It’s a dream to live with.
