Toyota revised the Prius Plug-in Hybrid, which is now available at prices starting at £32,070. The changes include adjustments to the scope of equipment, the multimedia system, the colour palette and design elements in the interior.
Another new feature is that the interior now offers space for five passengers. The revised plug-in hybrid also complies with the Euro 6d-Temp EVAP-ISC emissions standard, which comes into force in September. According to Toyota, an optionally available solar roof is capable of generating energy for an electric range of up to five kilometres per day.
In principle, customers can choose between two equipment variants. The basic version uses the latest generation of Toyota’s multimedia and navigation systems as well as a smart key system. 17-inch alloy wheels and the solar roof mentioned above are also available at extra cost. The top version – starting at £34,040 – the part-time electric vehicle comes with leather upholstery, sound system and 360° camera.
Inside, Toyota relies above all on black decorative elements and high-quality fabrics; outside, they now offer a “galaxy black” metallic instead of pomegranate red. Meanwhile, the drive system remains the same: The Prius PHEV also combines a system output of 90 kW with an 8.8 kWh lithium-ion battery, which supports a purely electric range of up to 55 kilometres.
