Thinking about buying a new Prius Plug-in and looking for the latest information? You’re in the right place – we’re pleased to share with you the price and key features for our range-topping hybrid.
To become the most efficient Toyota ever sold in the UK, Prius Plug-in takes all the well-proven benefits of Prius, and adds even more. The car’s refined and ultra-efficient full hybrid powertrain includes a 1.8-litre VVTi petrol engine complemented by a new, rechargeable lithium-ion battery.
This technology helps Prius Plug-in to cut tailpipe emissions to zero for longer periods of time. And unlike all-electric vehicles (EVs), once the charge in the battery is used up, the car switches seamlessly to its hybrid system, so the driver doesn’t need to worry about journey distances and driving range.
As a result, Prius Plug-in achieves a new low benchmark in its class for official CO2 emissions, 49 g/km, with fuel economy of 134.5mpg (combined cycle).
Recharging the battery is simple and speedy – just plug it in to a suitable domestic or workplace supply, or an on-street charging point.
Prius Plug-in comes with a charging set as standard, including five metres of cabling, that can be stored neatly in a dedicated area beneath the boot floor.
Toyota has teamed up with British Gas as its UK partner. British Gas can provide both fleet and retail customers with site surveys and install the appropriate hardware.
Equipment features and options
Prius Plug-in is offered with a generous range of advanced features. These include LED daytime running lights and headlights, the touchscreen Toyota Touch and Go Plus with satellite navigation, voice recognition, rear-view camera and advanced Bluetooth for phone connection and audio streaming, eight-speaker JBL sound system, rain-sensing wipers and cruise control.
Heated front seats, 15-inch alloy wheels and a leather steering wheel trim are also included.
If you’re looking to upgrade the Prius Plug-in even further, you have the option of Setana black leather upholstery (£1,500) and rear privacy glass (£270), together with a Protection Pack (rear parking sensors and boot liner) for £360 and the Style Pack (exterior chrome trim elements) priced at £300.
On the outside, Prius Plug-in is available in four colours, led by metallic Sky Blue, a new shade exclusive to the model. Tyrol Silver and Novus Grey metallics and White Pearl Pearlescent are also available.
