Drivers can get the best of both worlds with Toyota's ground-breaking Prius Plug-In, as it can run on electric power for up to 15.5 miles, or combined hybrid electric and petrol power for longer distances. It means you'll never have to worry about the battery running out, or where your nearest charging point is.
This innovative model has amazingly low CO 2 emissions of 49g/km in electric mode, along with great fuel efficiency which will leave you impressed at just how cheap a hybrid car is to run. Its 1.8-litre Hybrid Synergy Drive combines a 1.8-litre VVT-i petrol engine with two electric motors, and is even more environmentally-friendly than its predecessor, in addition to being exempt from road tax. Not only this, but its engine has a top speed of 111mph and is able to accelerate from 0-60mph in just 11.3 seconds.
The Prius Plug-In's streamlined and eye-catching exterior reduces CO2 emissions by as much as 14 percent, which makes it an even more environmentally-conscious vehicle. Its eco credentials do not, however, detract from its stylish design, with its sculpted body and an elegant, chrome-plated front grille for a wonderfully refined finish.
Within the cabin, thoughtful touches such as the Ecometer and an energy monitoring system ensure you're kept up-to-date on how much fuel you're using. In addition, the Bluetooth® connectivity enables hands-free calls, and the cruise control means you'll feel very comfortable at all times.
This vehicle is not only environmentally-friendly and comfortable, but also very safe and secure. The many side and front airbags for front passengers, coupled with curtain and knee airbags for rear passengers and drivers respectively, are just some of the excellent safety features. Others include ISOFIX child seat fixings and vehicle stability control, making this a very safe car.
The innovative Prius Plug-In features the world's most advanced technology to deliver class-leading fuel economy combined with impressive performance, allowing you to get the best of both worlds.
