How does the Toyota Prius compare with the other four Toyota models in terms of fuel economy?
By David LeopoldToyota has released a new model that will go on sale later this year, the Prius Plug-In.
It will be the company’s first plug-in hybrid vehicle, with an EPA-rated fuel economy of 22.5 miles per gallon, compared to the current EPA fuel economy figures for the Priuses petrol-electric hybrids and plug-ins.
The Prius plug- in is also rated to go on the road at speeds up to 75 mph.
It is the first plug in hybrid vehicle in a long time.
Toyota is not only the world’s largest automaker with a global fleet of more than 150,000 vehicles, it is also the world leader in electric vehicles, and it has been for decades.
Toyota says the Priusa Plug-in is the “ultimate plug- and play vehicle” which can drive itself and charge up a full charge in five minutes.
The company is aiming for electric vehicles to make up less than one-fifth of all car sales by 2030, with the majority of those vehicles being hybrids.
The company’s Prius range is set to grow to more than 1.4 million by 2021.
The first of the new models to be launched, the plug-In has a range of 1,400 miles, while the Priva Plug- In can be charged up to 20 times.
The range is similar to that of the Range Rover Evoque, and the Priuz V10 plug- ins.
The new Prius will be available for pre-order from November 1.
Toyota will be selling the vehicle in the US and Europe for $39,995.
