Almost five years after the introduction of Toyota’s pioneering first model, the stage is set for the all-new Prius Plug-in Hybrid to redefine the experience of plug-in hybrid vehicles all over again, with class leading targeted CO2 emissions of 22g/km and average fuel consumption of 282mpg. Discover what makes our new Hybrid’s fully electric driving experience truly special.
As with any Toyota full Hybrid, the Prius Plug-in is able to run on its petrol engine or electric motor alone, or both together, while regenerative braking recaptures electrical energy for storage in the battery.
By building on the foundations of the latest generation Prius – which showcases a more dynamic drive and an all-new full hybrid system – the intuitive, silent and responsive Prius Plug-in’s (PHV) is the perfect fit for those who want a Hybrid car with the benefits of extended Electric Vehicle (EV) driving.
The Prius Plug-in’s energy-conserving four-lamp matrix LED headlights with Adaptive Headlight System incorporate unique, speed-sensitive, adaptive beam technology. Using a light-sensing camera to detect the headlights of oncoming vehicles and tail lights of those ahead, it automatically adjusts your headlight beam so as not to dazzle drivers ahead. It even varies the angle and depth of the light beam to match your vehicle’s speed and help spread the light when cornering.
The Prius Plug-in also features Toyota Safety Sense as standard. Highlights include Full-Speed Adaptive Cruise Control (with full stop technology) which detects a change in distance to the vehicle in front and causes the Prius Plug-in to either slow, come to a complete standstill or accelerate smoothly back to its pre-selected cruising speed, once traffic speed increases.
Inside the Prius Plug-in’s advanced cabin, a wireless phone charger in the centre console allows you to recharge compatible smartphones without the need for a cable, while a colour head-up display presents essential information on the windscreen, so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road. There is also a new battery 'charge mode' available at the push of a button, which gives the driver on demand EV battery charging while driving, for when EV charge is depleted.
Completing this impressive host of features is Blind Spot Monitoring, Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Simple Intelligent Parking Assist (S-IPA) system, which uses an array of sensors to identify and steer into and out of parallel parking spaces – it will even guide you into perpendicular spaces too, for complete peace of mind.
