Toyota has officially announced the debut of Prius Plug-in Hybrid to Frankfurt Motor Show. This is the standard version of the prototype already presented by month and subject to several tests, ready to respond to competition in the hybrid. PHEV technology is the new flagship of the Japanese house, and proposes new lithium ion battery that allows an average consumption of just 2.2 l/100 km, with emissions of just 49 g / km. Aesthetically, the car does not undergo any change from the current model, with the exception of a cover specific to the external power supply.
The Prius Plug-in can travel in all-electric mode for much longer than in the past (the official figure is not yet available) and can recharge the battery via an electrical outlet: on this subject, are still lacking information on when and how charge available, which will be unveiled on the occasion of the German saloon. For reference, the concept of the Prius plug-in in his time claimed a mileage of about 20 km in zero emission mode.
