2012 TOYOTA PRIUS PLUG-IN HYBRID
Toyota is not enough just to 2009 Toyota Prius Plug-in concept, this really will give more advantages than previously. One of them is a plug-in models equipped with three battery sizes and special connection cable for connecting it to a 110-volt outlet to normal through the charging port is located under the drivers side fixed side window front.
A fleet of 150 plug-in Prius prototypes, wearing Blue Mica Metallic paint is splashed with Plug-In Hybrid and badges for placement flashy graphics, will spend two to three months each with the families throughout the country, collects data about how they are used and how people like them. This is less interesting than a Chrysler Turbine car.
The biggest difference is that achieving maximum performance in this car still requires a substantial contribution from the internal combustion engine, so any time you floor the accelerator you’re going to ignite fuel. The Volt’s motivating force is purely electric, so there’s always a ton of low-end torque available and you can hotrod around at any speed you like without fear of lighting its engine until the battery depletes to its designated level.
