Plug-in hybrid Prius to debut at Frankfurt

Date: 17 August 2011

Toyota's plug-in hybrid Prius

Toyota will debut the production version of the Prius Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September.

The new Prius Plug-in Hybrid features a new, more compact lithium-ion battery which offers extended EV (electric power only) range, enabling the car to achieve fuel efficiency of 128.4mpg and to lower CO2 emissions to 49 g/km, almost half the standard Prius.

The carmaker says the new plug-in Prius "offers drivers the best of both worlds; extended EV driving range for shorter journeys in towns and cities, while the efficient hybrid petrol engine gives the car uncompromised long range capability and the very low fuel consumption of the standard Prius".
